Man held over abduction attempts in Lymm

A man has been arrested by police investigating the attempted abduction of three girls in Cheshire.

A 14-year-old girl was grabbed by a man as she walked along Rushgreen Road in Lymm at about 1900 BST on Saturday, and forced into his red BMW car.

She managed to escape but half-an-hour later a man got out of a red BMW in nearby Bridgewater Street and offered two other girls a lift.

Cheshire Police said a 47-year-old local man was being questioned.

Police have advised women and girls in the area to be on their guard.

A spokeswoman said: "Anyone with any information regarding either of these incidents is asked to call Cheshire Police."
