Officers who dealt with reports of a young girl thought to be abducted in a Fenland town believe it was a misunderstanding.
Fen cops were called by a member of the public who was concerned that a child, believed to be around five-years-old, was taken against their will and put into a van in Cavalry Drive, March on Sunday evening (July 5).
Writing on the Policing Fenland Facebook page, a spokesperson said: “We would like to thank you all for your support in following and sharing the appeal.
“Officers have conducted a thorough investigation into the report and believe it to be a misunderstanding.”
Concerns were raised after a Fenland resident posted in a Facebook discussion forum to raise awareness of the alleged incident, with police reported to have been knocking on doors to gain more information.
