No action should be taken against police officers over a crash in which three young boys in a stolen car were injured, a watchdog has ruled.
The vehicle, stolen from Surrey, hit another car and a tree in Leigh Road, Eastleigh, on 3 September 2018.
A police car had been following the stolen vehicle for a few seconds before the crash, the Independent Office for Police Conduct said.
However it said police were not engaged in a "pursuit" and did not activate their lights or sirens.
Police said the 13-year-old driver, and his two passengers who were aged 13 and 12 at the time, all from Portsmouth, subsequently pleaded guilty to charges at a youth court hearing.
