Investigations into the exact circumstances of the collision are ongoing and officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

The driver of a black Ford Focus, a 26-year-old man from Portsmouth, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and driving a motor vehicle when the proportion of a controlled drug is suspected to be over the prescribed limit. He is currently helping officers with their enquiries.

There is no evidence to suggest at this stage that the two vehicles were in collision with each other.
