POLICE had to chase a driver after a traffic incident on Romsey Road in Winchester this afternoon.

The collision saw two vehicles involved, and officers on social media said that one driver ran from the scene as they arrived, and was chased on foot before being caught.

According to the social media post, a male blew 130 at the roadside, which is nearly four times the legal drink-drive limit.

Officers say he is now in custody.

The road had been partially blocked eastbound due to the crash near Chilbolton Avenue.
