A major road into Portsmouth has been re-opened after being blocked by an overturned lorry this afternoon (Thursday June 25).

The accident happened on the northbound carriageway of the M275 just before the Tipner junction shortly after midday.

However, traffic delays remain in the area.

Traffic tailbacks are likely to cause problems for drivers heading for the A27 into West Sussex.

A Hampshire Constabulary said three vehicles were involved in the accident but only minor injuries were sustained although the two cars also overturned.

More than 20 emergency vehicles were reported to be at the scene.
