A man is due to appear in court accused of abducting a six-year-old girl off the street in Burnley.

Imran Khan, 33 of Accrington, is accused of taking the girl while she played on her bike on Nairne Street on 26 March.

He has been charged with taking a child under the Child Abduction Act, breach of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order and inciting a girl under 13 to engage in sexual activity.

Lancashire Police launched an investigation after the girl was taken at around 4pm on 26 March. She was found 30 minutes later, around three miles away, in a "very distressed" state, by members of the public.

Khan is due to appear at Burnley Magistrates court to face the charges.
