Police are appealing for more information about an alleged road rage incident on the A272 near West Meon.

It took place on the westbound carriageway between Langrish and West Meon at around 4.30pm on Wednesday, December 14.

The victim, a 46-year-old man, said he was driving a silver Vauxhall Astra when he noticed a white Ford Transit van being driven close behind him.

The van then overtook the Vauxhall Astra and slowed so that both vehicles stopped.

The van driver is described as:

Around 5ft 8ins tall

Crew cut hair style
Wore a hooded top
