Full-scale hunt after missing person underway in Gloucester

Emergency services are currently involved in a full-scale search near to Gloucester Docks.

Police officers, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service and the Severn Area Rescue Association were still searching the waterways around the Castlemeads area as Punchline published just before 1pm.

Emergency Services were called to Gloucester Docks shortly after 11.25am following reports that a member of the public was swept away by the river, which is swollen from recent downpours.

A road closure is currently in place at Westgate Island whilst searches take place.

A helicopter from the National Police Air Service was flown up and down the stretch of the Severn between Westgate Island bridges which allow access in and out of the city to the Forest of Dean and Maisemore, and the Docks.

No other details were available from police.
