A suspected drug driver has been arrested after a lorry overturned on a major Hampshire road.

The A272 was closed in both directions at West Meon after a lorry involved in a crash with a van ended up on its side.

The driver of the lorry, a 32-year-old man from Barnstaple in Devon, was arrested on suspicion of drug driving yesterday.

He has since been released under investigation.

The accident between the West Meon Hut, now renamed The Hut, and Stocks Lane caused delays in both directions.

However, no-one was seriously injured.

A police spokesperson said: "We were called just after 10am to a report of a collision involving a lorry and a van. Minor injuries were reported.

"The driver of the lorry, a 32-year-old man from Barnstaple, Devon, was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and has been released under investigation."
