A car has crashed in Winchester city centre.

A dark coloured hatchback thumped into the barrier by McDonalds on St George's Street at approximately 5.15pm, blocking one lane of traffic one the one way system.

No one appeared to be injured in the crash, and no other vehicle was involved. 

Exactly how a car can crash into the barriers was unclear.

Traffic has quickly built up and is currently moving slowly.

Drivers should avoid the area if at all possible.
