Police are trying to trace the man pictured in connection with an incident in Clevedon last month that left two horse riders injured, one potentially seriously.

Avon and Somerset Police are investigating the incident, which happened at just before 3pm on Sunday, November 28.

It unfolded as two people were riding horses along Nortons Wood Lane, near the junction of Harley Lane.

"A dog ran towards them and is said to have scared the horses, causing both riders to fall," said a police spokesperson.

"One of them sustained potentially life-changing injuries, while the second sustained a broken foot and bruising.
