A teenage human trafficking victim who believes she has been in the UK for about three years is being helped by police after being driven to Derby.

The 17-year-old was dropped off in Chaddesden on Thursday afternoon by a man driving a dark blue car.

She began asking for directions to a police station and was directed to a station in Roe Farm Lane, where she arrived at about 18:00 BST.

Officers want to speak to passers-by who offered help to the woman.

Derbyshire Police said the teenager does not know where in the UK she has been.

She told officers she was kidnapped on her way to school in Gambia three years ago.

She is black, about 5ft 7ins tall and was wearing a black and white polka dot top.

Officers are also trying to trace her movements around Derby and identify the car and driver.
