A search was un­der way last night af­ter a kayak over­turned in the River Nith at Dum­fries.

Po­lice, fire ser­vice, coast­guard and am­bu­lance ser­vices were called to the Maxwell­town side of the river at a point known lo­cally as The Caull.

Po­lice Scot­land said: “It is not known whether there was any­one in the Kayak, whether the per­son is still in the wa­ter or whether they have man­aged to swim ashore.”

Wit­nesses were asked to call Dum­fries po­lice via 101.
