Have your say

Drivers leaving the M27 at Junction 2 faced delays today after a lorry overturned.

The early-morning accident blocked the A36 from the motorway to the A3090 Romsey Road.

Only the hard shoulder was open southbound as emergency services dealt with the incident.

Hampshire Police tweeted a picture of the lorry on its side, saying that drivers should expect delays whilst specialist recovery took place.
