DRIVERS faced delays of up to 50 minutes on Tuesday on a stretch of dual-carriageway near Andover.

One lane was blocked on the A303 eastbound, near the A34 junction.

This was due to a crash involving three lorries, according to the AA.

Heavy delays were building on the approach with tailbacks as far as Picket Twenty reported.

Hampshire constabulary was been contacted for more information.
