Police are appealing for witnesses to a suspected road rage incident which took place near the M5 yesterday afternoon, Tuesday.
Police were called with a report that a woman, who was driving a black 4×4, had been threatened by the occupants of another vehicle at around 5pm.
The woman had left the motorway at junction 12 and was driving along the B4008 from Stonehouse heading towards Bath Road when a silver Ford Mondeo, which was driving in front of her, braked suddenly and forced her to stop.
She beeped her horn before the occupants got out of the vehicle and the driver then shouted and swore at the woman while holding a knife in his hand.
Both drivers got back into their cars and carried on their journeys after the altercation however the Ford followed the victim towards Waterwells Drive in Gloucester before eventually driving away.
