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.

Police searching for a man who went missing in Bristol earlier this month say they have found a body.

26-year-old Lewis Ball went missing after a night out at Thekla nightclub in the city centre on February 5.

During an extensive search police released CCTV of Lewis on the night he disappeared and handed out leaflets at the nightclub during the weeks after his disappearance.

But this morning it was announced that police divers had found a body in the city's floating harbour near to where Lewis went missing.

Although formal identification is yet to take place police say they believe it is the body of Lewis.
