Police said a car collided with the central reservation of the dual carriageway at around 9.50am, westbound between Stockbridge roundabout and Fishbourne roundabout.

Reports from the scene indicated that the car had ‘lost a wheel or two’ but no other vehicles were involved and the driver had minor injuries, a police spokesman said.

The carriageway has now been cleared. Police added that work may be needed to repair the central reservation.

Long delays were reported in the area, with queues stretching down Birdham Road and backing up along the bypass in both directions.

Traffic flow has now returned to normal.
