THE A31 through the New Forest is blocked after a crash involving four vehicles this afternoon.

The road is partially blocked eastbound as a result of the collision, which happened just before the exit slip to the A338 in Blashford.

However, westbound traffic is also slow as drivers stop to look.

Witnesses say one car hit the central reservation and span around in the carriageway.

A spokesperson from Hampshire police said: "We were called at 4.10pm to reports of a collision on the A31 eastbound at the Ringwood off-slip.

"A van, a Volvo V50, a Mercedes, and a Peugeot 208 were reportedly involved.

"The slip-road is currently blocked as a result of the collision.

"No serious injuries have been reported."
