It is understood that no other vehicle was involved in the collision.

Hampshire’s Roads Policing unit tweeted a photo of the car after it landed in the hedge, joking that it was ‘not the best place to park your car’.

A police statement said the male driver was unhurt but the female passenger suffered a minor injury.
