RUSH hour traffic was seriously delayed after two accidents on one of the major routes out of Portsmouth this morning.
A five car crash in lane two on the A3 northbound at junction 13 happened at 6.57am.
Although the other lanes remained open while emergency services worked at the scene, traffic faced long tailbacks.
Only 12 minutes later a second crash happened heading towards the first incident, on the bridge to the sliproad of the A3(M) at the junction with the A272.
Vehicles involved in both incidents have now been recovered and traffic is flowing as normal.
No one was hurt in either of the incidents.
