Police search river for missing man

Search teams are trying to find a man who's missing after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River in Datchet in Berkshire.

Police were called shortly after 7pm yesterday evening to a report of people having entered the river at The Myrke.

One man is believed to have got in to difficulties in the water and is yet to be located.

Officers have been liaising with partner agencies and search activity is being carried out to attempt to locate the man.

“It is understood that some members of the public are attempting to search near the Jubilee River for the man who is yet to be located. I would like to advise anyone who is doing this that they do not enter the water as this could put them in danger. They should search from the bank only and, if they see anything they think is significant, they should speak to a police officer at the scene. Anyone who witnessed the incident or who can assist police enquiries should speak to an officer at the scene or call 101.”
