TWO separate collisions are causing delays on the M3 this afternoon.

Both the northbound and southbound carriageways have been affected in two separate incidents.

As of 3.35pm, one lane which earlier was blocked on the southbound carriageway just before Junction 5 for Hook due to a collision has now been cleared with delays easing.

Meanwhile, a lane blocked was also by a collision on the northbound carriageway between Junction 6 for Basingstoke and 5 for Hook.

However, this has now cleared and delays are easing, according to the ROMANSE, the Hampshire County Council travel service.
