Sussex Police said they received a report of a 13-year-old girl being approached by a middle-aged man as she walked home from school.

A spokesman said: “We received a report of a 13-year-old girl being approached by a middle-aged man in a black car in Crabtree Lane, Lancing, shortly before 6pm on Monday.
