Have your say

A lorry fire caused traffic tailbacks on the M3 between Eastleigh and Winchester today.

The early morning blaze led to the closure of the inside two lanes of the northbound carriageway of the motorway between junctions 11 and 13.

The Highways Authority said that delays of up to 40 minutes were expected but that traffic conditions should return to normal by about 8am.
