A MAN was cut from a car after a collision on a Hampshire motorway.

The Vauxhall Corsa crashed into the verge on the M3 southbound between junctions 12 and 13 for Eastleigh shortly before 3.30am.

Fifteen firefighters from St Marys and Eastleigh stations were called to the scene, and they removed the roof of the car to get to one of the passengers.

He was then taken to hospital by ambulance.

A spokesman for South Central Ambulance Service said the man's injuries are not life-threatening.

The driver and another passenger did not require treatment.
