A CAR burst into flames on a Hampshire motorway this afternoon. 

Emergency services rushed to part of the M3 today following reports of a vehicle fire. 

One lane of the motorway was blocked southbound between junction 8, Popham, and junction 9, Winnall. 

Motorists have been asked to "approach with caution" but the vehicle has since been cleared. 

Delays in the area have began to ease.
