TRAFFIC has built up on the M27, eastbound, following a rush-hour accident this morning.

Two lanes were closed between junction five at Southampton Airport and junction seven at Hedge End.

The tailbacks are caused by a collision between a car and a van. Police are currently at the scene and the vehicles have now been removed from the road.

Motorists are being advised to be aware of possible delays.
