TRAFFIC is slow on the A31 westbound this afternoon following a two-vehicle crash.

Recovery vehicles are still at the scene following the collision between a Mini Cooper and a recovery truck, which took place earlier today at the Eastfield Lane turn off.

Although one lane of the dual carriageway was closed after one of the vehicles collided with the central reservation, traffic is now flowing again.

There were reports that motorists were attempting to reverse along the carriageway to avoid lengthy queues after the crash.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Police said the collision involved two vehicles, and minor injuries were reported. Motorists are advised to avoid the area.
