The collision, at around 2.15pm, saw two vehicles involved, and officers on social media said that one driver ran from the scene as they arrived, and was chased on foot before being caught.

A Hampshire Police spokesman said: "A BMW and a Honda Accord were involved.

"No injuries have been reported.
