Girls approached by black car and asked if they 'wanted a lift home'

Two girls, aged 9 and 11, have been approached by two men in a car asking if they wanted a lift home, police in Gloucester say.

The girls, one of them on a scooter, were playing outside the Moorfield Road flats in Brockworth when a black car pulled up alongside them.

They declined the offer and there was no attempt to reach out to them. The incident happened at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.

The driver is described as black and 'quite old' with an eastern European accent and was wearing a denim jacket while the passenger is white or mixed heritage with a 'wrinkly face'.

Police are asking anyone who saw the black car - which they say may have been a Renault Clio - to call 101 quoting incident number 340 on 21 February 2017.
