A man has been arrested following a reported fail-to-stop road traffic collision in Bournemouth.
At 9.20am on Thursday 29 July 2021 Dorset Police received a report that a silver Mercedes had collided with a MG ZS on Bath Hill roundabout and the driver of the Mercedes did not stop at the scene. The MG sustained damage during the incident.
