POLICE are investigating an incident in which a jogger had a gun pointed at him by a passenger in a passing car.

The 49-year-old man was running along Upwell Road, March, away from the town centre, when a car described as an old-style red Ford Escort saloon pulled up beside him.

The front passenger side window was wound down and a man inside pointed a gun at the victim and threatened him. The car then drove off in the direction of the town centre.

The gunman is described as a white youth with ginger hair.
