A man who "looks like a smurf" is the subject of a police appeal after reports of suspicious activity around the Longhope area in the Forest of Dean.

Gloucestershire police are appealing for information for a man dressed in a "blue morphsuit" (see below) who was reportedly waving at woman and doing star jumps while running up to them.

Spotted over the Jubilee weekend in the May Hill area of the town, police are worried he may have been following women in the area.
