Blood trail found in Bishops Meadow, Hereford

Officers were alerted by a member of public to a blood trail stretching from Victoria Bridge to Bishops Meadow and through Hinton Avenue. The trail was discovered at approximately 7:42am this morning (Tuesday 16 February).


The trail appears to originate near to Nelson Street. Blood has also been found on a bench by the ship monument on Victoria Bridge and near to other benches along the river.


Detective Inspector Richard Rees said: "I want to reassure residents that we are investigating the cause of this blood trail thoroughly and there appears to be no threat to the wider public. Uniformed officers as well as detectives from CID are at the scene conducting door-to- door enquiries, searches of the area and we are in contact with local hospitals.


"There is nothing to suggest that a crime has been committed, we are keeping an open mind to all possibilities. Our main priority is to find the person who is injured and bleeding. If you have any information that could help our investigation please call 101."


If you witnessed anything suspicious in the area or may be able to help with the investigation please call 101 quoting incident number 84s of Tuesday 16 February.


Alternatively, if you do not feel comfortable speaking directly to the police then you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online via their website. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

I was going to say it is probably someone with a nose bleed. Good to hear that nobody is hurt


The Official update could have diffused the inevitable nose bleed comparisons .... Obviously the 'pay grade' paid to the press release person responsible wasn't high enough .....  :tongue_32:
