Police are investigating after a teenage girl was reportedly offered a lift by two men in a van.

The girl was walking along Buntsford Hill, Bromsgrove when the incident happened at around 2.20pm on Tuesday, April 18.

A white combi van pulled slowly alongside her and the driver spoke and asked if she wanted a lift, while the passenger laughed throughout the conversation.

But they drove off when the 16-year-old girl, met up with her boyfriend.

The driver is described as a white man in his mid-twenties, slim, clean shaven with short dark brown hair. He was wearing a navy blue jacket with a green/blue logo.

The passenger is described as a white man in his late-twenties, well built with short dark hair and a beard. He was wearing an orange hi-vis jacket.

Officers from West Mercia Police have appealed for anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the van or has any information which may assist the investigation to come forward.

PC Martyn Dudley said:

West Mercia Police takes all reports of suspicious incidents seriously.

We are keen to speak to the driver of the van to establish his motives, which might have been entirely innocent, or anyone who saw what happened.
