She added: ‘One of the cars was in lane three, so there was a closure to get the car on to the hard shoulder. Both cars are clear from the carriageway and our units have stood down.’ There were delays from the A3 at Hilsea.

A crash westbound on the M27 at junction 7 for Hedge End also caused delays.
