Police looking for 'Smurf' star jump pest
Police in a rural beauty spot were yesterday hunting a man who has been pestering women while dressed as a Smurf.
The man has been spotted on a number of occasions performing bizarre acts in public while wearing a skin-tight blue 'morphsuit' and blue face paint.
He has been seen running up to women and performing star jumps in front of them in Longhope, Gloucestershire.
There are fears he may have targeted more women in the area who have yet to report the incident.
