Lincolnshire Police have launched an urgent appeal to find two males after a three-year-old girl was kissed on the face by a stranger.

The young girl was walking down Barrowby Gate in Grantham with her mother last Wednesday afternoon when the incident took place.

Police have released a CCTV image of a male in a white and grey jacket and second male wearing a red top.

Police believe the male in the white and grey jacket bent down and kissed the three-year-old girl on the face before walking away with the male in the rep top laughing.
