It’s understood the van flipped at about 9am near the exit for Horndean.

There has been no word of whether anybody has been hurt.

However, two crews have been called out to a separate incident in the west of the county on the A34.

Teams from Whitchurch and Sutton Scotney, near Winchester, were mobilised to that scene at 9.37am, a fire and rescue spokeswoman said.
