Motorcyclist injured in hit-and-run in Gloucester

A motorcyclist was injured in hit-and-run in the Barnwood area of Gloucester.

The 52-year-old man, from Gloucester, was travelling on a Honda motorbike along the A40 from the Elmbridge Court roundabout towards the C&G roundabout shortly after 06:30 BST when it is alleged a white van cut in front of him.

He collided with the crash barrier, suffering cuts and bruises, and was checked over at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital before being discharged.

The van driver did not stop at the scene and Gloucestershire Police is now appealing for the motorist, or people who saw what happened, to come forward.

Its cool for.... dogs

Last year Gloucestershire Police became the first force in the country to issue cooling coats for its service dogs.

And the equipment has been helping keep the canines cool during the Easter heatwave.

Dogs can easily overheat in cars or during drugs searches but the coats help them escape fatigue.
