A vehicle has been seized in Southampton as police investigate a hit-and-run incident that killed a pig in the New Forest

Police seized the blue Peugeot in Southampton after it was involved in a crash that killed a pig near Emery Down in September. 

The driver failed to stop at the scene. 

But on Tuesday police said they were parked in a Southampton street when the vehicle drove past them. 

The driver was stopped and the car was found to have no insurance. 

Now an investigation is taking place to find out who was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash. 

A spokesperson for the force said on Facebook: "The investigation to confirm who was driving the vehicle at the time of the RTI will continue and this driver will have to come in and answer some questions, but in the meantime his car has been seized under section165 of the Road Traffic Act.

"The #NewForestRoads can be unpredictable, with a variety of live stock and wild animals potentially on the roads at any time of day and night.

"If you see an injured animal please report it.

"If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an animal RTI you are required by law to report it within 24 hours, even if the animal runs off (remember, the adrenaline can mask injuries for a time), but to prevent delay and reduce the suffering of the animal we ask that you report it immediately."
