  1. Suspicious car lift offer prompts police warning

    Chipping Camden

    Families in the Cotswolds are being warned to stay vigilant after a teenager was approached by a man in a car who became aggressive as his offer of a lift was turned down.

    The 18-year-old had been walking in the Chipping Campden area shortly before 9pm on Friday 15 January when a black car, possibly a Volkswagen, pulled up beside her.

    When she refused the lift, the stranger became aggressive and got out of the car.

    He then returned to his car and drove in the direction of Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire Police said.

    The young woman ran off and was able to raise the alarm. It was not known what this man's intentions were.

    More advice on stranger danger can be found at the children's charity, the NSPCC.

    Major roadworks have begun on the A46 after the road suffered subsidence caused by a landslip.

    A section of the road between Brockworth and Stroud near Coopers Hill in Gloucestershire has been affected.

    Gloucestershire County Council will be working until March to stabilise part of the road surface.

    During this time, the road will be fully closed for 12 weeks and will then see further lane closures until 23 April.

    A diversion will be put in place using the A4173 and the A417.

    The council's senior structure engineer Jennifer Dorman said: "We are hoping that we can save time but we're going for 12 weeks.

    "We've got to do some tiling and secure the road and then put a new safety barrier in so it is complex work and we have to rebuild the road afterwards, so it is going to be time-consuming."
