WINCHESTER traffic has been brought to a standstill after an articulated lorry collided with a car.

Lane one westbound on Easton Lane at the Winnall roundabout (junction 9) on the M3 has been closed after the lorry and a white Seat Leon collided at approximately 11.15am today.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesperson said: “We were called to the slip road northbound at 11.17am after two vehicles were involved in a collision. We believe an articulated lorry went into the back of a white Seat Leon which contained three passengers.

“One of the passengers reported a minor injury and we are working out how to relocate the lorry but both vehicles have been moved from the area.”
