HAMPSHIRE CONSTABULARY have announced they have launched an “urgent” appeal for witnesses and information to support their continuing investigation following a traffic related incident in Fareham over the weekend; which saw two unidentified car drivers involved in a “physical altercation” near to the Longfield Avenue and Newgate Lane roundabout.

It is reported that the incident occurred between the times of 4:30pm and 5pm on February 10 (Saturday) with the early enquiries helping to establish the two vehicles involved; a Mercedes Viano and Volvo XC90. At the time of writing there is no information about either driver, although they exited their vehicles and were seen in the altercation before leaving.
