POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two possible accosting incidents in Felixstowe.

One incident happened around 4.45pm on Friday January 23 as an 11-year-old girl was walking along Highfield Road heading towards Orwell Road when she became aware of car pulling up next to her.

The front window was opened and the man inside the vehicle - described as white with thick eyebrows and stubble on his face - spoke to her.

The second incident occurred around 8pm last night in Manning Road.
