DRIVERS on the M27 faced huge tailbacks and an HOUR long delay after two rush hour incidents on the same stretch of road.

A crash on the eastbound carriageway near junction 9 closed all three lanes earlier this morning.

And although the road was quickly cleared, traffic bosses say the road has been closed once more in the same area, due to a broken down lorry.

Traffic bosses warned of an hour long delay - with traffic backing up 10 miles from junction 9 for Hedge End back to junction 5 for Eastleigh.
