Barton-under-Needwood 2001 child abduction: Man charged

A man has been charged over the abduction of a child fifteen years ago.

The six-year-old girl was taken from Barton-under-Needwood, a village in between Lichfield and Burton-upon-Trent in Staffordshire, in 2001.

Staffordshire Police say Arnold Baxter, 72, of Bath Street, Rugby, Warwickshire has been charged with kidnap and indecent assault.

A force spokesman said Mr Baxter was due before magistrates in Cannock on Saturday.
