Police are appealing for help to find a missing man from Somerset.

27-year-old Michael Mingo went missing around 5 o clock on Tuesday morning after leaving a friend's house in Langport. He was last seen walking in the direction of his home along the A378 in Curry Rivel.

Police say his disappearance is out of character and they are concerned for his welfare.

Michael is described as white, between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet tall, of slim build with straight light brown or blonde hair. He has a tattoo of a bio-hazard sign on the top of his back and a scar which looks like a mole on his lower back.

He was last seen wearing black jeans, black work boots, a dark t-shirt with a logo on the front and he was carrying a grey rucksack. He may be wearing a thick silver neck chain which had a titanium ring on it.

Anyone who sees Michael, or who has information about his whereabouts, is asked to call 101 quoting reference 5216141610.

The deal - including a "Metro Mayor" - would see the region take over decisions on areas like transport and housing from central Government.

The amount of investment per year the deal would bring the West.

It would bring £30 million a year in investment.

North Somerset Council earlier voted against the move.

South Gloucestershire Council took longer to make its mind up as a number of councillors wanted to defer the decision until the country's situation is more certain following the EU Referendum.
