Concerns are growing over a missing Minchinhampton woman.

Hazel Denham was last seen yesterday afternoon in the Tynings area with her dog, Bertie. She said she was going to walk Bertie on the common.

The 71-year-old suffers from problems with her memory and is considered vulnerable.

Hazel is white, 5ft 6ins tall and with short red hair. She was wearing a blue or black bomber jacket and brown walking shoes.

Bertie is a black poodle, who has a red collar and was being walked on a red lead.

Police are urging anyone with information to get in touch.
