A MAN was taken to hospital after being pulled from the water at Snuff Mills.

Emergency services were called to the Oldbury Court estate at around 10.45am today.

An Avon and Somerset police spokesperson said the man "appeared to be bobbing up and down and then went under the water".

“Two police officers attended and waded into the watercourse and pulled the man out and began providing CPR until ambulance personnel arrived to take over," the spokesperson added.

South Western Ambulance Service arrived a few minutes later.

A service spokesperson said: "We sent various resources to attend the incident, including an ambulance, an air ambulance and hazardous area response team paramedics.

"Our crews treated a male patient at the scene, and transported him to hospital by land ambulance for further care."
