Police are looking for two men after a three-year-old girl was approached and kissed while walking with her mother.

The incident took place along Barrowby Gate in Grantham, Lincolnshire, at around 2.55pm on 22 June (last Wednesday).

As the mother and daughter walked along the road, two men came towards them, and one in a white and grey jacket bent down and kissed the child on the face before walking away.

The distressed mother tried to confront the men, but they walked off in the direction of Dysart Road, with the second man - who was wearing a red top - laughing as they left the scene.

Lincolnshire Police has issued a CCTV image of two men they would like to speak to.

"We appreciate the CCTV footage is blurry, but this was a particularly distressing incident for those involved," the force said.

"We are appealing for anyone who may recognise this pair based on their distinctive clothing to please come forward with any information you have to help us identify these men."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 289 of 22 June, or email control@lincs.police.uk - or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
