Hampshire Constabulary are appealing for witnesses, or anyone who has any information, after a motorcyclist failed to stop after a collision in Southampton.

The incident occurred between 11.50pm on the evening of 18 September and 00.10am on 19 September on Peartree Avenue in Southampton.

A licensed taxi had been parked at the roadside collecting passengers, when a motorcycle collided with the taxi and a passenger as they were getting into the vehicle.

The motorcycle, which is described as being either silver or black, failed to stop at the scene.

A man in his 20s suffered minor injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital as a precaution.

Officers have conducted a number of initial enquiries but are now asking the public for help.

A spokesperson for the force said: "Were you in the area at the time? Did you see what happened? Perhaps you have CCTV or doorbell footage in the area?

"Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting reference number 44210376049."
