Police in Gloucestershire are trying to trace a prisoner who has absconded from Leyhill Prison. 30 year old Ashley Tessyman (pictured above) was serving a prison sentence for burglary and robbery in 2006. Police say he has links to Cornwall but they believe he could be in Dorset.

I am appealing for anyone who knows of the whereabouts of Ashley Tessyman to come forward – all calls will be treated with the strictest confidence. I urge members of the public who see anyone they believe to be the person pictured to call the police. In the interest of personal safety do not confront him.

A photographic competition to capture 24 hours in Bristol is kicking off today.
Last year the event saw around 10,000 pictures taken from all over the city.

The best 72 photos will win prizes with a new Waterways prize this year. Around 100 photos will then be put in an exhibition on 11th October at the Harbourside Arts Centre, off Millennium Square.

Hundreds of people have already entered and you have until midday to enter. ITV viewers will be able to enter for free. Click here to enter.

Most people wander around and don't even look at their surroundings.

So it's a great opportunity to get creative, to wander around the city and often explore places no one has ever been before.

It's a good way of discovering hidden corners of the city.
