The PSNI has made an appeal after a man in a white van tried to get a young school girl into it.

The incident took place on Monday afternoon as the child was walking home from school in Lisbellaw when she was approached by an elderly man in a white van offering her a lift home.

A spokesperson for the PSNI said: "Initially this sounds suspicious but was this you? Were you just offering a young girl a lift home? It could be innocent enough but we want to make sure." 

The spokesperson added: "If this was you or you have any information, ring us on 101 quoting cc662 of 14/05/19."
