FIRE crews were called to hunt for a car feared to have veered off the road and crashed into a bush.

A team from Havant fire station was called out at 9.30am today following reports a vehicle had come off the A27 near the slip road from the A3, eastbound.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, there was no trace of a vehicle.

To be sure, officers used a thermal imaging camera to scan the area but again found nothing.

A spokesman from the fire service said calls like this were ‘unusual’ but added: ‘Sometimes they do turn out to be road traffic collisions with people still trapped in cars. But this time it appeared the car drove back onto the road.’
