A three-car collision on the A27 near Havant is causing severe disruption to traffic as far as Emsworth Junction, reports indicate.

An air ambulance was called to the scene at the westbound carriageway of the A27 at its junction with the A3M this afternoon.

Two lanes of the westbound carriageway are closed and traffic is slow moving eastbound around the accident site.

A spokesman from Hampshire Police, who are at the scene, said: “We were called at 2.50pm this afternoon to reports of a collision involving a Vauxhall, an Audi and a Mercedes on the A27, at the junction with the A3(M) near Havant.

“The eastbound carriageway is currently running slowly and the westbound carriageway has been closed completely, as has the junction with the A3(M).

“Motorists are able to leave the A27 at the Broadmarsh exit.

“We would urge motorists to avoid the area if at all possible and we would like to thank you for your patience as we deal with this incident.”

The eastbound carriageway had been temporarily closed but is now open.
