A MOTORWAY has reopened after it was shut when a lorry overturned. 

The M3 Westbound was closed between Junction 12 and Junction 13 earlier this morning. 

It came as an HGV had overturned in a crash, shedding its load at around 10am today. 

The motorway was closed near Eastleigh with delays building in the area. 

Motorists were warned to allow extra time for their journeys. 

All lanes have since reopened. 

Delays were caused as far away as Junction 14 for the M27.
