POLICE are appealing for information after a man tried to lure a 15-year-old school girl into his van.

The van is described as small, white, with a dirty exterior and only two side windows.

The driver is described as a white man, with a scruffy appearance, aged between 40-50 years old, with dark brown shoulder length hair with grey streaks in it. He was wearing a green/grey fleece.
