Have your say

Am elderly woman wanted in connection with an incident involving a young child in Fakenham last week has been traced by police.

It happened at around 11am on Thursday June 4. A family were in a card shop in Millers Walk when they noticed an elderly woman unknown to them pick up their young child and start to walk away.

The child’s mother confronted the woman and the child was given back without any hostility from either party. The child was not harmed.

DC Carl Ritchie said: “Police can confirm they have now traced the woman and whilst enquiries are continuing we do believe this to be an isolated incident.”
