A 37-year-old man found in Littleham suffering cuts to the wrist was picked up by police on Thursday night and taken to hospital.

The police were called to Midway at 10pm to help paramedics after a member of the public reported concerns for the welfare of a 37-year-old local man who was believed to have cut himself.

When the man made off before the police arrived, a sniffer dog and police handler was sent to track along a lane leading onto the John Hudson cycle path towards the town - before turning their attention to Bidmead Close, Littleham Road and Jarvis Close.

The dog handler caught up with the man when two members of the public reported seeing a male who was bleeding going into Crawford Avenue.

The man was detained and taken to hospital, suffering from cuts to his wrists.
