Crews from Temple, Bath and Bedminster were mobilised to reported sightings of a male in the river on Eldon Way, Brislington.

Sadly despite a multi-agency effort to locate him, involving the search and rescue helicopter and crews from AF&RS, Avon & Somerset Police, and HART (Hazardous Area Response Teams), the man was lost to sight.

During the extensive search one firefighter suffered minor injuries and was conveyed to hospital.

After no sighting of the male for over 90 minutes, a multi-agency decision was made to stand down the operation.
