The force added that the vehicle was pursued until the motorist started driving off-road on Tiptoe Green, as they were concerned for the safety of the public. They said the Vauxhall then hit several parked cars in Burghclere Road, but still managed to get away.

“We are appealing for witnesses to identify the occupants of the Astra,” Havant Police said. “If you witnessed any part of this incident, or have relevant dash cam footage, please call 101 quoting reference 44240140245.”
