DRIVERS are facing massive delays this morning after a four vehicle crash on a Hampshire motorway.

It comes after police closed the carriageway of the M27 eastbound between junctions 8 and 9 for five minutes at about 8am to clear the cars off the road, although lane three was only reopened at 8.45am.

Ambulances were at the scene as long delays remained even after the road had reopened.

Traffic flows in the area had returned to normal by 10am.
