The male victim was punched in the head and thousands of pounds were stolen from the safe.

The Muntjac deer is being looked after by the Vale Wildlife Centre near Tewkesbury.

A spokesman says that deer are very susceptible to shock - so it is too early to say whether she will survive.

She is quite badly injured & deer are very susceptible to shock so it's too soon to judge really. Prognosis not good though.

Tornado rips through Gloucestershire army base

A tornado has hit our patch this evening, causing extensive damage to a military vehicle base.

The whirlwind tore across the Army vehicle depot at Ashchurch near Tewkesbury.

The roof of one of the buildings - which stores and maintains military vehicles - was badly damaged, as tree branches were ripped off by the strong winds.

You could hear it, we have tanks here and it actually sounded like one of those, it was a really deep rumble.

It was a classic twister and it ripped across the site for maybe half a minute. You could see debris being carried up into the air as it came across. It headed off in a northerly direction. I don't know whether it did more damage offsite or if it carried on or died down.
