A BURNING vehicle is blocking a Hampshire motorway.

A fire has ripped through a car on the Eastbound lanes of the M27 between J8 near Bursledon and J9 near Park Gate.

New Forest Post:

Motorists are being warned of a five-mile queue and 25-minute delays.

Lane 3 of the motorway has since reopened and traffic is moving "very slowly".

Delays of around 20-minutes are also expected on West End Road, Providence Hill, and Bridge Road between St John's Road and Swanwick Lane.

The Daily Echo has contacted Hampshire Fire and Rescue Services for comment.
