Five police cars, two ambulances and an air ambulance were scrambled to a Stoke-on-Trent park. Police and paramedics searched Mace Street Park, in Trent Vale, following last night's 999 call raising 'concerns for the welfare of a teenage girl'.

But the girl could not be tracked down - and was later found at home. The alarm was raised at 6.25pm on Sunday, July 7.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "We were called following reports of concerns for the welfare of a teenage girl. Officers carried out a thorough search of the area alongside paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service. We then learned that the teenage girl was at home. Officers visited the address to speak to her. After making sure she was safe and well, officers left."

The air ambulance landed on Mace Street Park.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called to reports of concern for a patient’s welfare on a playground. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene. However, on arrival, following a thorough search of the area, no patient was found and we were stood down."
