Police are appealing for help to find a missing 29-year-old woman and her eight-month-old son who have gone missing from the Stoke-on-Trent area.

Staffordshire Police believe Laura Pazir and her son could be in the Manchester area.

She's described as white British, 4ft 12 ins tall, of slim build with dark brown straight hair and has a Midlands accent.

She also has a fairy tattoo on her back between her shoulder blades and another tattoo on her right arm near her wrist.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who has seen Laura or her son over the last 24 hours.



Central Motorway Police say they expect lane 3 at junction 15 to reopen shortly. The M6 northbound between junction 14 and 15 remains closed after an earlier lorry fire and emergency repairs.
