In a statement, a spokesperson for Hampshire Police said: “Throughout the course of our enquiries we have arrested a 31-year-old woman from Southampton on suspicion of assault.

“She has been released from police custody on conditional bail while our investigation continues.”

They added: “We believe there are likely to have been a number of witnesses in the area at the time who have not yet spoken to police.

“Perhaps you were walking nearby at the time and saw what happened or were driving though the area and have dash cam footage which may have captured something?

“Anyone with any information that may assist our enquiries is asked to call 101 quoting reference 44230481535.”
