Second arrest made over Gloucester assault

A second man has been arrested in connection with a serious assault in King's Walk in Gloucester on 10 January.

A man was punched in the face and fell to the ground, losing consciousness. He had serious facial injuries and a head wound.

A 28-year-old man from Stroud is now in custody following his arrest on suspicion of assault.

Earlier Gloucestershire Police arrested a 25-year-old man, also from Stroud, on suspicion of assault.


Police: accident will have affected 'many people' at Christmas

The Christmas Eve accident on the M5 near Stroud involved six vehicles travelling northbound. At least two vehicles on the southbound carriageway hit debris from the initial accident.

A 38 year-old woman driving a Citroen Berlingo van was seriously hurt. The woman from Ross-on-Wye was taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol for emergency surgery. She is said to be in a 'very serious and critical' condition.

Other people with minor injuries were treated at the scene. The motorway was finally reopened at 3am on Christmas morning - eight hours after the crash.

Police investigators are appealing for information from anyone at the scene, including drivers who may have dashboard cameras.

"To attend an incident such as this at any time of year is incredibly sad and traumatic. It will undoubtedly have affected many people who travelled on the M5 and particularly those who were involved in it and saw it happen."
