A RUSH-hour collision involving three vehicles has closed one lane of the A338 Spur Road this morning.

The crash happened on the southbound carriageway, around one mile from the Blackwater Junction, shortly before 8.50am.

It involved a silver Peugeot 206 registered to a woman from Ringwood, a red Fiat 500 registered to a woman from Southampton and a silver Mercedes SLK registered to a woman from Bournemouth.

No one is believed to have been injured but the local authority was called to deal with fluid making the carriageway slippery.

Dorset County Council highways said there are delays of up to 30 minutes heading towards Blackwater Junction.
