Hunt for man with knife on Coney Beach in Porthcawl

Police are searching for a man with a knife who approached three fishermen on a beach during the night.

The fishermen were at Coney Beach, Porthcawl, at 0130 GMT on Saturday when they were approached by a "suspicious" man who then ran off.

No-one was hurt but police want to find the man, said to be 25-30, about 6ft (1.83m) tall, and of Asian appearance.

They warned the man, who was in a white hoodie, black jogging bottoms, and dark trainers, should not be approached.

The man ran off in the direction of the fairground, said police.

Insp Mark Kavanagh said: "No-one was hurt during this incident but my officers are continuing to look for this male.

"I would urge anyone with information about the incident, or who may have seen him in the area, to come forward."
