Police are appealing for help in finding a 12-year-old boy who has gone missing from his home in Lancashire.

Kit Hayton, from Helmshore Road, Haslingden, was reported missing at 16:00 BST.

Police said he was last seen wearing pyjamas, a grey fleece and black boots. He has distinctive dark, curly hair.

Insp Phil Turner appealed for anyone who sees him to contact them as "understandably his parents are worried that he is OK".

"We have a team of police officers and staff out looking for him but we would ask the public to remain vigilant and report any sightings to us immediately," he said.
