An investigation is underway into a fail to stop collision on Portland.

The victim had parked her black Volkswagen Golf on the road in Chiswell on Tuesday evening. (15th May) 

At around 9.30pm occupants of nearby houses reported hearing a loud bang and when they went out to investigate they found the Golf had been shunted forward and its nearside wheel was now up on the pavement.

There was extensive damage to the offside of the vehicle.

The offending vehicle was not seen.

Police Constable Caroline Orchard, of Weymouth police, said: "We are carrying out a number of enquiries to identify the offending vehicle and I am appealing for any witnesses to this incident to contact police.

"It is likely that the other vehicle involved will also have sustained significant damage in the collision so I would also like to hear from anyone who saw a damaged vehicle in the area around the time of the incident."
