Police are appealing for information after a car overturned having come off the A34 at Bullington Cross north of Winchester.

At around 5.40am today (Monday, February 18) a blue Ford Mondeo travelling south on the A34 came off the carriageway, became airborne and landed on its roof on the slip road underneath the A34.
