Man’s cut foot sparks extensive Norwich river search
An extensive river search involving fire crews and police was sparked by a man who cut his foot on a piece of glass and left a trail of blood close to the water.
Fire Crews from Carrow, Sprowston, Earlham, Great Yarmouth and the brigade's Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) unit were called to help assist police in a search of the River Wensum near Heigham Street, Norwich.
The search, which started just after 7.30pm on Friday (September 23), was prompted by a call from a member of the public who had spotted a lot of blood leading to the river.
A Norfolk police control room supervisor said police attended and found a 'considerable amount of blood' leading to the river on a footpath between Heigham Street and Anderson's Meadow.
A search was carried out and police were later told who the blood belonged to. They located him and were told he had cut his foot on some glass and had gone to the river to wash it.
