A POLICE helicopter was hovering over the Bournville Estate, in Weston today, in an attempt to track down a male stowaway.

At 12.15pm today a lorry was making a delivery on the Locking Castle Estate when three men, who had been riding in the back of the vehicle, jumped out. The lorry had just arrived back from the continent.

Police were called and were able to catch two of the men and have now detained them. Enquires are continuing to find the third man.
