A helicopter was flying over Bridgwater tonight, which seemed to be holding some form of holding pattern, as though searching for something.

While we do not know when this started, we first noticed it at 10.30pm and it is still taking place as I write this.

I contacted the Avon & Somerset police to ask them if they knew what this was, but was informed that they were unable to give me any information, due to data protection.

If anybody knows any more about this, please let us know.

Unfortunately, this is not a great video above, but this shows some of the footage shot of the helicopter tonight.

Please note that this update follows research on what is being said on social media. This should not be classed as the best of sources for news.

There are currently two stories doing the rounds.  The first being that these are military training, the second being that this is connected to the escape earlier today of two convicts from HMP Leyhill, who escaped earlier today, after forcing a door open. If you do see these men, don’t be a hero – just walk in the opposite direction and call 999.
