A stretch of the A34 through north Hampshire has been closed this afternoon.

The northbound carriageway between Bullington Cross and Tot Hill is currently blocked after a lorry carrying liquid egg overturned.

A spokesman said that the lorry driver sustained minor injuries and that the carriageway was expected to reopen by 4.30pm.  

Drivers are being diverted at Bullington Cross.

Highways England have said that the carriageway is expected to be cleared between 10pm and 10.15pm and that normal traffic conditions are expected around this time.
