Police in Lowestoft are trying to trace a driver who asked an injured nine-year-old girl to get into his car.

Two girls were cycling to school along Wissett Way yesterday when one of the girls fell off near the Rumburgh Road junction at about 8.35am. She was crying and a red car, possibly a Fiat Punto, pulled up. The male driver got out and offered to take the girl home.

The other girl said she would go and get a family member and set off. The man who had stopped put the bike into his car and said he would take her home. She got in and the man started to drive off. The girl's father arrived and shouted for the driver to stop. He got his daughter and her bike out of the car and the driver left. The driver is described as being in his late 30s to early 50s and of small build.

The driver, or anyone with information, should contact Lowestoft police on 01986 835300.
