Police are appealing for information after two men approached an 11-year-old girl in Felixstowe and asked her to get in to their car.

The school girl was playing on her scooter on Monday (July 1) when she heard a car slow down behind her.

Two men began to speak to her from the car saying that her mother had sent them to take her home and said she should get into the car.

The girl refused and returned home.

She said that the pair spoke with foreign accents but did not see the males or their car.
