Have your say

POLICE are appealing for information after a suspicious incident at Havant railway station.

A 13-year-old girl was standing outside the station in North Street when she was approached by a man.

He asked the girl if she wanted a lift in his car to school.

However, the girl declined.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘The girl was not threatened, touched or injured. This report is not linked to any other cases or crimes.

‘Enquiries are continuing to identify this man. An e-fit image is now available.

‘Police are appealing for this man to come forward and speak with officers about what happened. There could be a completely innocent explanation for what happened.’

The incident happened at about 8.15am on Tuesday, January 22, although details have only just been released.

The man was white, about 50 years of age, about 5ft 6in tall, of chubby build, with short grey hair under a small black woollen beanie hat and a rounded face.

He was wearing a thick mostly cream coat with a black pattern, darkish blue jeans and big blackish boots which looked like they stopped at the ankle.

He was English speaking.

Call police with information on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
