PART of one of Hampshire's busiest motorways was closed tonight after a road smash.

The M27 eastbound carriageway was blocked between junction 11 Fareham and 12 Portsmouth when a Jaguar and Kia Carens were in collision at 7.05pm.

It followed heavy showers which had caused treacherous driving conditions and excess surface water.

Both drivers received treatment at the scene for minor injuries.

Motorists were caught in severe tailbacks for nearly an hour while crews removed the vehicles blocking three lanes.
