Boy, 11, approached in Perth by man in van

Police are appealing for witnesses after a van driver approached and spoke to an 11-year-old boy in Perth.

The incident took place on Craigie Knowes Road at about 10:30 on Saturday.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said it was possible there was an innocent explanation, but said officers wanted to speak to the driver to establish the circumstances.

The man, who was driving a white van, was described as being in his 40s, with short, red hair.

He was of slim or medium build and possibly spoke with a Glaswegian accent.
