River Stour 'man in river' inquiry concluded

Police have stopped investigating a report of a man falling into the swollen River Stour in Dorset after no-one was reported missing in the area.

A three-hour search of the river took place in Christchurch on New Year's Day after a man and a woman were seen arguing on Iford Bridge.

Police had wanted to speak to a witness who saw the pair arguing.

However, a spokesman said inquiries had concluded after Dorset Police received no reports of a missing man.
