At its worst, the queuing traffic stretched past junction 4, the turning for the M3.

Now, all the lanes are cleared and traffic is moving.

In a separate incident, a broken-down vehicle on the eastbound carriageway between junction 10 for Fareham and junction 11 also added to the problems, but all lanes have now been reopened there too.
