Have your say

POLICE are still appealing for witnesses after a van driver failed to stop following a collision on the M27 on Monday morning.

A white van was travelling west between junctions 12 and 11 when the driver lost control and was involved in a collision with a silver Ford Transit van.

The silver van ended up on the central reservation, facing the opposite direction, while the white van drove across to the hard shoulder.

Police say the driver of the white van left the scene without exchanging details. The driver of the silver van, a man aged 60 from Southsea, was attended to by paramedics at the scene but was not hurt.

Police are trying to trace the driver of the white van, which will have visible damage to its front, and say it was lucky no one was hurt in the collision.

The fast lane was closed while the recovery team removed the silver van.

Fuel and debris was also scattered across the highway.

Motorists from the A27 faced delays of up to 30 minutes following the incident.

If anyone has information on the incident or witnessed it, contact PC Steve Wootton, of the roads policing unit at Fratton police station, at 101.
