River alert as kayak found
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.
