THE occupants of these cars were 'lucky' not to be injured following a crash on a Hampshire motorway this morning.

Police were called to the M27 eastbound at Eastleigh at 5.41am after the collision between junction 4 for the M3 and junction 5 for Eastleigh.

Two lanes were blocked for nearly two hours while officers dealt with incident and a spillage on the road as a result of the incident.

Officers later tweeted that it was "sheer luck" no one was injured.

Crews from South Central Ambulance Service and Highways England were also at the scene.
