M3: Van and lorry crash shuts motorway near Winchester


A crash in the early hours led to the closure of a stretch of the M3 motorway.

The incident, involving a lorry and a van, happened on the westbound carriageway between junction 8 for the A303 and junction 9 at Winchester.

Highways England said due to the “complex recovery” as the lorry had overturned onto its side one lane remained closed.

Drivers have been urged to allow extra time for their journey.

Diversions during the earlier full closure of the motorway via the A34 and A303 have been lifted.

Hampshire Constabulary said the drivers of both vehicles suffered minor injuries.
