The assault is believed to have come following a dispute between two drivers

A man has been taken to hospital with a serious head injury after an assault on the hard shoulder of the M27.

Hampshire Constabulary was called at 11:46 BST on Sunday to the westbound carriageway between junctions 3 and 2 at Nursling.

Police believe there was a dispute following an incident with a red VW Golf estate and a silver VW Amarok.

A man, 27, has been arrested on suspicion of assault and a 36 year-old man on suspicion of affray.

A 46-year-old man was taken to Southampton General Hospital for treatment for a serious head injury.

One lane of the carriageway was temporarily closed to allow an investigation to take place but has now reopened.
