The Nissan driver has been described as white, thin, aged about 30, with blonde tied-back hair, tattoos on her upper chest and was wearing a strappy top.

PC Michael Nol, from the Havant Roads Policing Unit, said: ‘This is a busy stretch of road and I have no doubt that other road users would have witnessed at least part of this incident.

‘I would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or the moments prior to the assault.

‘In addition, we would like to speak to anyone who can help us identify the driver of the Nissan Micra so we can speak to her about what happened.’

Anyone with information is asked to call Havant RPU on 101, quoting 44170243333, or call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
