A VEHICLE has been involved in a police pursuit after it was spotted driving the wrong way down a dual carriageway slip road near Whitchurch.

At approximately 3.20pm on Tuesday, October 26 Hampshire officers travelling on the A34 carriageway saw a silver Subaru Outback driving the wrong way on the Whitchurch slip road, northbound.

A spokesperson from Hampshire Police, said: “We are appealing for witnesses to a dangerous driving incident on the A34 northbound on Tuesday afternoon (26 October).

“We have been conducting enquiries to locate the vehicle involved and are now turning to the public for help.

 “Were you in the area at the time? Did you see a silver Subaru Outback driving the wrong way up the slip road? Did you witness the vehicle travelling along the A34 afterwards?

“We’d like to hear from anyone with dash cam footage of the incident or the vehicle around the time stated above. We’d also like to hear from you if you’ve seen the vehicle since.

 “We believe that it possibly has damage to its offside and has no front number plate.

 “Anyone with information, no matter how small it may seem, is asked to contact us on 101 quoting reference 44210430064.”
