Two girls have reported a suspicious approach made by a man at a play park in Co Antrim on Saturday.

Police in Newtownabbey are appealing for information following the incident in the Lismenary road area of Ballynure.

The two girls reported that as they were leaving the park at around 11am, a man driving a white van called over to them and asked them to get inside.

A male passerby, however, asked the man what he was doing before he drove off in the direction of the nearby Larne Line.

The van driver was described as being around 40-years-old and was wearing a black baseball cap.

Constable Lowry has appealed to anyone who may have noticed a white van being driven in the Lismenary Road area at the time to contact officers at Newtownabbey on 101 quoting reference number 525 11/06/16.

Information can be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
