Police are investigating after an alleged indecent assault on a jogger who was running on Clifton Downs.

The woman was in the area just before midnight on Wednesday and had stopped running to use her phone, when a man jumped out of the bushes and tried to grab her.

This is the fifth attack on the Downs reported to the police in the last three months, however officers do not believe this incident to be connected to the other four.

An amateur football club near Bristol says it will have to fold after being "evicted" from the ground it has used for more than 40 years.

Hallen Football Club, who play in the Toolstation Premier and have several junior teams, say Almondsbury Parish Council is closing The Hallen Centre, which is used by the whole community.

The council said it has provided support to the club, but the centre could not be made financially viable.

It's easy to say we're not viable, but at the end of the day it's for the people and parishioners of Hallen. And yes there's people out there who probably don't live in the parish of Almonsbury, but they are children. They are there and they are enjoying their sports.

– Frank Fairman, Hallen FC Vice-Chairman
