There were two crashes on the A27

The second collision at 5.17pm was a three-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the A27 – again between A2030 Eastern Road, Farlington, and the M27 Portsbridge roundabout at Hilsea.

‘One of the vehicles caught fire following the impact, so the carriageway was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident. No injuries were reported to us and the carriageway was partially reopened by 6.40pm,’ a police spokesman said.
