Cumbria police investigate claims of child abduction bid

Police are investigating whether an attempted abduction took place in Whitehaven after rumours of four separate incidents engulfed social networking sites.

Rumours of the incidents were reported over the weekend, forcing officers to issue a statement last night which said they had yet to ‘uncover any evidence of a crime being committed.’

It did say, however, that they were called to a suspicious incident in High Road, Kells, at 2.40pm yesterday which involved a young girl.

“Police are investigating this incident to establish the full facts,” the statement said. A woman on Twitter claimed her four-year-old cousin was “nearly abducted”.
