Witnesses reported seeing police officers searching woodland and bushes lining a pathway leading to the top of the motorway bridge off Warwick Crescent.

A resident from the village, who asked not to be named, said at the time: "I just tried walking under the motorway bridge with my dog towards the riverside but it was taped off. There's loads of police."
