ONE of the main routes out of Southampton has been closed following an accident.

Millbrook Road West has been completely shut westbound at the Regents Park Road junction.

All three lanes are closed leading to long tailbacks from the city centre.

Police, fire crews from Redbridge and St. Mary's and the ambulance service are all on the scene.

Special cutting equipment is currently being used to take the roof off a vehicle involved to allow a patient to be rescued.
