POLICE are investigating a road accident in Portsmouth.

A silver Ford Mondeo collided with several parked cars in Margate Road, Somers Town, at around 3.45pm on Friday.

Three men were seen getting out of the car and walking away towards St James’s Road, Southsea.

An 18-year-old man from Waterlooville and a 20-year-old man from Southsea were arrested, questioned and bailed until the final week of August.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Pete Bambury said: ‘This was a serious collision in a residential road and it was lucky that no pedestrians were injuried.

‘We are interested in speaking with anyone who saw the collision, a silver Ford Mondeo being driven around the Somers Town area on Friday afternoon, or anybody with knowledge of the people inside the car.’
