MOTORISTS are facing delays on the M27 this morning after a vehicle broke down.

One lane of the westbound carriageway is currently blocked by the vehicle between junction seven for Hedge End and junction five for Eastleigh.

Travel information service Romanse says delays are building in the area, and a traffic map shows congestion as far back as junction eight for Bursledon.

Motorists are advised to check their route before travelling this morning.
