Police in Greater Manchester have released an e-fit of a man suspected of attempted child abduction in Reddish.

Between 3pm and 4pm on Thursday, May 25, a 14-year-old girl was walking along Dumbarton Road when she noticed a white van following her.

The girl has stopped to cross the road and a man has got out of the van and grabbed her by shoulder.

He told her to come with him but the girl has kicked the man and ran off.

Police have now released an e-fit of the suspect in a bid to identify him.

Detective Constable Matt Tarr, for GMP’s Stockport borough, said:

I would urge anyone who recognises the man pictured to call police immediately.

I would like to praise the girl for her courage during this incident and I want to stress the importance of not speaking to strangers.

– Detective Constable Matt Tarr

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 quoting incident number 933 of 27 May 2016.

A parking officer slapped a ticket on a car left in a disabled bay - while he was parked on double yellows himself.

The council employee was caught on camera pulling the cheeky move on Arthur Street in Reddish earlier this week.

Stockport council said he had been issuing a penalty charge notice to a vehicle that had parked in a disabled bay without displaying a blue badge, but admitted he should not have parked on double yellows to do it.

They said 'appropriate action' will be taken to avoid it happening again.
