MOTORISTS are facing long delays this morning after an accident on a Hampshire motorway.

A collision at around 7.30am blocked lane three of the M27 westbound, approaching junction 5, at Eastleigh, sparking major congestion for rush-hour traffic.

The lane has now been cleared but long queues snake right back to junction 9 and those trying to get onto the motorway at junction 7, from both Hedge End and West End, are also being warned of delays.
