An 11-year-old girl has been assaulted three days after an attempted child abduction in Newbury.

Police said a "scruffy" white man in his 40s approached the girl on Love Lane at 15:30 BST on Friday, close to Trinity School.

Officers said they were "keeping an open mind" about a possible link with the attempted abduction of an eight-year-old girl on Tuesday.

The girl was cycling on Owen Road when a woman in a car grabbed her arm.

Thames Valley Police have said there were "extra patrols" in the area.

Det Con Snezhanna Lennon said: "This was a frightening experience for the victim."
