Police have said they are not investigating allegations on social networking websites that three men attempted to abduct a child from a car in Rookery Lane, in Lincoln.

Claims have been made on Facebook that the men approached the car yesterday evening while it was waiting at a set of traffic lights and tried to gain entry.

But spokesman for Lincolnshire Police, James Newall, said that there is no suggestions anyone was trying to abduct a child.

He said: “We had an incident reported to us this morning where a man tried a car door, in Rookery Lane, yesterday evening. The door was locked.

“This is not a case of attempted child abduction, this is a case of someone trying a car door. It’s been called in as suspicious circumstances.”
