Police have given Heart an e-fit and description of a man they want to speak to after a girl says she was asked to get into a van for money.

It happened as the 10 year-old walked along Coombe Valley Road in Dover at about 1.30pm on Saturday 24th April.

The man got out of a small white van which had pulled up and parked in front of her.

The girl ran home and told her family what had happened.

The man is described as:

  • white but with a well-tanned appearance
  • 6ft tall
  • of chubby build
  • 45 to 50 years old
  • with white short hair
  • was wearing a light green jacket, blue jeans
  • spoke with a local accent

Police believe this was an isolated incident but say parents should remind children about not talking to strangers.
