ONE of Hampshire's busiest junctions was closed because of an overturned lorry.

The accident was set to cause chronic congestion in Winchester and on the M3 motorway.

All lanes are currently closed on the Winnall roundabout.

Howard Rhodes, the South East correspondent for Highways England, said: "Shortly after the lorry turned, a van crashed into the central reservation of the roundabout causing about 30 minute delays. This has since been cleared and teams are working to get the lorry back up the right way."

Northbound traffic from Spitfire Link is being diverted to Easton Lane.

The ROMANSE traffic information service is warning of current delays of 40 minutes heading back to M3 J12.

Emergency services are at the scene but no-one is believed to have been seriously injured in the incident.
