Have your say

THERE are queues on the M27 after a rush-hour accident.

There has been a collision on the westbound carriageway between junction 10 for Alton and junction 9 for Park Gate and Whiteley.

One lane was closed after the crash, which happened at about 5pm, and was between a car and a pick-up truck, but has now been reopened.

However traffic service Romanse has reported that there are still long delays, and drivers have reported that they are stretching back almost to Portsmouth.

It comes after several accidents in the last few days, including this morning.
