Have your say

A lamppost collapsed into the middle of a road after a car crashed into it, police have said.

Western Road in North Harbour, between the traffic light junction by the Pall Europe building and the Portsbridge Roundabout in Cosham, was closed following the collision at around 4.20am.

Workers from Colas removed the lamppost from the road, which was then reopened.

No other vehicle was involved.
