'Car drove slowly past girl cycling in Crowle' - police investigate report
Police are appealing for witnesses after a car drove slowly past a 10-year-old girl cycling home from school in Crowle.
The girl's mother was cycling a short distance behind her daughter at the time, but reported the car, which contained two men, because she felt it was suspicious.
It happened in Mill Road on Monday, at about 3.25pm.
The car did not stop and the men did not talk to the girl.

Officers searched for the dark blue vehicle but were unable to find it.
The report comes as detectives in Scunthorpe investigate the apparent attempted abduction of an 11-year-old girl in Annes Crescent last Friday.
Yesterday, police appealed to residents not to panic over unfounded rumours of other incidents being spread on social networks including Facebook, and said "hoax" reports risked harming their investigation.
A spokesman said today: "Officers are keen to reiterate that children and their parents do need to be aware of the general stranger danger advice.
"However, we would also point out that there is no reason to panic and worry unduly. North Lincolnshire is a very safe place to live and work.
"If anyone saw the car and has any more information about it or the people travelling in it, or indeed the driver of the vehicle itself, they are asked to call police on 101."
Witnesses should refer to log 461 of October 8.
