Lane one of the A3(M) remained closed after the fire was put out because of damage caused to the road. 

This caused motorists to face delays as long as 25 minutes until about 4pm – with queues stretching from Chalton Lane in Clanfield to Waterlooville Golf Course.

The News has approached South Central Ambulance Service for more information.
