Highways England said three lanes of the M27 were shut eastbound between junctions 11 and 12 because of a collision in which a refuse vehicle overturned.

Emergency services were alerted at around 10.50am.

Four people were in the lorry. Three suffered minor injuries, one more serious but not life-threatening.

Lanes 2 and 3 have been closed for recovery of the lorry which has taken time due to fuel leakage.

Lane 1 and the hard shoulder were open for traffic to get past.

A crane was brought in to pull the lorry upright.
