Police have dropped an investigation into a report that a man assaulted a 11-year-old girl as she was walked to school in Dorset.

The girl said she was grabbed as she walked along Higher Shaftesbury Road in Blandford on Monday morning.

She claimed she managed to run away from the man but suffered minor scratches in the attack.

But Dorset Police said the reports were "unfounded" and the complaint had been withdrawn.
