Two fire engines were called to the scene as well as paramedics and police.

A badly-damaged car was at the scene. It was not immediately clear whether oiher vehicles had been involved.

Queues backed up to the A3m junction at Bedhampton and the accident caused big delays for drivers trying to get into Portsmouth.
