TWO children were among six people hurt in a three-car smash in Southampton tonight.

A Vauxhall Astra and two Fiats were in collision in Hill Lane close to the A35 Winchester Road junction at 4.35pm.

The two youngsters and three adults were taken to Southampton General Hospital by ambulance and their injuries are not thought to be lifethreatening.

A sixth person was checked over at the scene.

Part of the road was blocked while police cleared the wreckage causing long tailbacks.
