A dog left for dead at the side of a road in Gloucester after being used for badger baiting has made what vets are calling a 'miracle recovery'. The terrier was blind with third degree burns when she was rescued. This report contains images you may find distressing.
A man has had his mountain bike stolen after being threatened at knifepoint by three men in Quedgeley. It happened on Wednesday at 4:30pm on the corner of Bristol Road and Goodridge Avenue. The offenders took his bike and £60 that fell out of his pocket.
A £25,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved in a robbery at a bank in Quedgeley last week.
The reward has been donated by HSBC, whose branch at Olympus Park was ram raided last Friday morning.
During the incident, a Nissan Navara (registration number SV03 GVL) was seen being driven into a glass door before two men wearing balaclavas entered the building and snatched a substantial amount of money being loaded into a cash machine.
We’re hoping that this money may convince someone to come forward who was reluctant before.
These offenders need to be stopped before they strike again and possibly hurt someone.
We’re continuing with a number of forensic and other inquiries but still need information from the public. Please think back to that morning and call us if you can help. No matter how small a detail you think it is we want to hear it.
– Detective Inspector Marc Flannery, Gloucestershire Constabulary
Officers are still particularly keen to speak to customers who tried to use the ATM, which was out of service, between 9am and 9.25am.
