It caused lane two of the road, westbound, just before the Portsbridge Roundabout at Hilsea, to be blocked before being cleared just before 8am.

As a result however, congestion is trailing back towards Emsworth – leading to estimated delays of about 30 minutes. 

Drivers are also facing a wait on the M27 heading east, with an approximate 15-minute delay between J11 at Fareham and the A27 at the Portsbridge Roundabout.
