VIDEO footage has been released of a forensics team scouring the M3 yesterday.

It has not yet been confirmed what the substance was, or how it ended up in the road.

Motorists reported being stuck for hours as a result of the incident, with social media users sharing pictures of the scene, with one showing a man walking his dog on the hard shoulder, others playing golf, and another doing a handstand on the carriageway.
