He was taken to hospital.

The Portsbridge Roundabout, in Hilsea, was also closed but one lane has now been reopened.

A spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘We were called at 2.14pm to six vehicles involved in a crash on the entry sliproad of the A27.

‘One person was taken by the ambulance services to hospital.’

One lane was also closed on the westbound slip way coming off the A27 at the Portsbridge Roundabout due to an accident.
