DRIVERS faced long delays on a major Hampshire route following an early-morning crash on a Hampshire motorway.

Motorists using the B3354 near Twyford were hit by delays of around 40 minutes northbound.

The queues began to ease at around 9am.

It comes after a collision caused rush-hour delays on the M3.

Delays of nearly half build build on the northbound carriageway between junction 14 for the M27 and junction 12 for Otterbourne.

The crash took place sometime before 7am near junction 12.

The incident has been cleared but there are delays remaining on the M3 itself, as well as on both M27 link roads.
