TWO lanes of the M3 southbound are currently closed due to an accident earlier this morning. 

Emergency services are dealing with a collision between two vehicles on the southbound carriageway of the motorway between junction 6 for the A339 and junction 5 for the A287 Hook. 

Motorists are being warned to approach the road with caution while the scene is cleared. 

Delays are expected to be upwards of an hour until all three lanes are reopened.
