THERE were long tailbacks along Portsmouth’s Eastern Road after a crash between a motorbike and a car.
The crash happened in the southbound carriageway, near to the Good Companion pub, at about 6pm.
There was a collision between a green Ford Fiesta and a red Yahama bike.
Emergency services were at the scene within minutes.
Some of the road had to be closed off as the highway was strewn with debris.
A police spokeswoman said: ‘There was a road traffic collision between a green Ford Fiesta and a red Yahama motorbike.
‘There was a slight injury.’
Queues stretched back to the A27 as emergency services dealt with the incident.
A recovery vehicle went to the scene to take away the damaged vehicles and the road was later re-opened.
