Police appeal after girl is approached by man in car

Police in Haverhill are appealing for witnesses after a 10-year-old girl was approached by a man in a car.

It happened at about 1pm on Saturday in Greenfields Way.

The girl was walking along towards Cleves Road when a silver car pulled up beside her and the driver asked if she would like to get in.

She ignored the driver who, on seeing a dog walker approaching on the opposite side of the road, quickly turned the car around and drove off towards Duddery Road.

The motorist caused other traffic to wait while he turned his car and police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen him.

The car was described as a silver Vauxhall people carrier, or similar model. The man is described as white, aged between 40 and 50 years old, of a large build and with a bald head. He was wearing a green camouflage t-shirt and smoking a rolled-up cigarette.
