Police in Bridport are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a road traffic collision in Charmouth.

The incident, which resulted in a Volkswagen Golf colliding with a parked Mercedes van and a chain fence, happened along The Street at around 8.55am on Friday 27 January 2012.

No-one was injured as a result of the collision.

Police Constable Sara Mackay, of Bridport police, said: "I understand that a black Suzuki Vitara was travelling west along The Street when it slowed to allow an unknown vehicle to enter the road.

"The VW Golf passed by the Suzuki, crossed the carriageway and collided with the van and the fence, before coming to rest.
