Two suspicious women approached a young girl and offered her a lift in their car, say Suffolk police.

The 10-year-old girl was offered a lift by the two women in the Cedars Park area of Stowmarket at about 11.40am on Saturday.

The two women, who do not know the young girl or her family, reportedly approached the child after she crossed the road in Gun Cotton Road. 

The news comes after a schoolgirl was left "shaken up" after being approached by a suspicious man in Norfolk last month.

The child is safe and police have been made aware of the incident. 

Police say they have shared information on the incident with officers in the area for safeguarding purposes.
