A MAN who died after his car crashed into the central reservation of the M27 has been named by police.

An investigation was launched by Hampshire Constabulary appealing for witnesses to the accident, which took place on Monday, September 14 at 9am.

The 4x4 vehicle, which 56-year-old David Heading, from Littlehampton, was driving, struck the crash barrier about 600m past the westbound on-slip at junction 9 westbound near Whiteley.

Police said he died from natural causes and have closed the investigation, and so an inquest will not be held.
