TRAFFIC was brought to a standstill during rush hour after a motorcyclist was thrown from his bike in a crash.

The motorbike and a vehicle collided between junctions seven and five westbound on the M27 just after 8am today.

The motorcyclist was thrown from his vehicle and fell onto the carriageway.

Police say he is not seriously injured, but are warning motorists about heavy traffic while police work at the scene.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: ‘Motorists using junctions seven to five of the M27 are advised to allow extra time for their journeys due to increased congestion following an earlier collision.

‘Police were called to the stretch near West End shortly after 8am after reports that a motorcyclist was in collision with a car.

‘The motorcyclist was thrown from the vehicle and fell into the carriageway across lanes two and three, bringing traffic to a standstill.

‘The motorcyclist although shaken does not appear to be seriously injured but traffic is still delayed while police help clear the scene.’
