Police are urgently appealing for witnesses after receiving reports a man was seen being put in the boot of a car on the A48 in Blakeney, Gloucestershire.

Officers say they got a call from a member of the public saying they saw a man and a woman putting a man in a T-shirt into the boot of a dark coloured car. The car is thought to be a five-door hatchback.

It is understood to have happened on Wednesday morning (10 August) close to the Manchester House Bed and Breakfast at around 9.15am.
