Have your say

A SECOND crash on the M27 is causing delays for motorists.

The accident happened on the M27 eastbound, at Segensworth, at around 2.40pm.

A vehicle is believed to have collided with a barrier on the slip road.

The inside lane is blocked, in a section of road where roadworks are currently taking place.

Emergency services are on the scene.

This is the second accident to take place today on the M27. Earlier a motorcyclist was killed on the westbound carriageway at junction five when they were knocked down by a lorry at 7am causing the motorway to be closed for seven hours.
