A subsequent post has now said: “Eastbound - All lanes now CLEARED at J5/A335 #Eastleigh after an earlier multi-vehicle incident, delays easing.”

Police attended the incident and have stated the crash involved just a single-vehicle in contrast to the council’s social media post claiming several vehicles were involved. A spokesperson said: “We were called at 11:58am today (Friday 7 June) to reports of a single vehicle collision on the M27 eastbound near junction 5. No injuries have been reported.”
