A LANE was closed on the M3 this afternoon after a breakdown.

Lane 1 was shut on the northbound carriageway between Junction 6 (Basingstoke/A339) and Junction 5 (Hook/A287).

This is because of a vehicle having a tyre change.

Live traffic showed slow moving vehicles on the M3 around Junction 6 on the northbound carriageway.

The vehicle was cleared after about 25 minutes and delays have eased.
