Gloucestershire Police have released footage of an altercation involving a cyclist and a pedestrian as they appeal for witnesses.
The 86 year-old cheesemaker who supplies a wheel of Double Gloucester for the annual cheese rolling event has been warned by police that she could be liable for legal action if anybody is injured. Diana Smart has supplied the 7lb cheese for the race near Brockworth for the past 25 years.

When the prosecutors asked for something less than the death sentence, for a custodial sentence, then I guess I'm afraid some of us perhaps relaxed a little and this has come as a real shock that the judges have actually delivered a sentence which is obviously much, much harsher than the one that was actually requested by prosecutors.
Lindsay Sandiford kept her face covered as she arrived at Indonesia's Bali court to hear her death penalty sentence over drug smuggling.
