POLICE are reviewing CCTV images after a young girl reported that she had been followed by men driving a car in Bishopbriggs.

The force said they were investigating the incident which happened on Fern Avenue at around 3pm on Wednesday.

They received a report that a white transit type van had been acting suspiciously in the area but they have established that there was no criminality at this point of their investigation.

It comes after reports of the incident circulated the social media website Facebook.

Family and friends of the girl described the men as Asian on two separate posts on the website and reported that the girl was followed by the car down Beech Road and into Fern Avenue.

The girl, who is of primary school age, only escaped when she hid in hedge in a residential garden. The car then screeched away thinking the youngster returned home.
