Police are trying to trace the owner of a kayak found empty floating on the River Avon in Saltford.

The blue and white kayak was spotted floating on its side by a member of the public at 12.30 this afternoon.

Police say there's nothing to suggest anyone was in the kayak or is currently missing but they want to locate its owner to confirm no-one is in danger.

A search of the area has taken place and enquiries have been made with local boating clubs.

Anyone with information which may help trace the owner is being asked to call 101 and quote log number 337 of 1 December.
