All lanes of the M27 were closed this afternoon at J1 due to a "man sunbathing in the middle of a carriageway." 

A rolling roadblock was put in place after reports a man was lying in the road.

Hampshire County Council's road traffic Twitter account, Romanse, tweeted all lanes were blocked at Cadnam due to the man sunbathing by his van on the westbound carriageway. 


Drivers caught up in the tailbacks said the man had been lying barechested alongside his van, which had a flat rear tyre. The road was reopened just after 4pm. But there are still delays back to J4, made worse by a broken down vehicle on the A31 at Fritham.
