A man has died in a crash on a main road through the New Forest in Hampshire.

Police said the 22-year-old man was driving a Peugeot 406 that was in collision with a coach on the A31 westbound near Ringwood at 02:15 BST.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

No-one else is believed to have been hurt. The A31 has since reopened after a diversion was put in place between the M27 and Ringwood.
