  • Enquiries are continuing at this time.

Police investigating an incident at Gosling Sports Park in Welwyn Garden City are trying to trace a woman who is reported to have intervened.

At around 4.30pm on Friday 9 July, an eight-year-old girl was using the toilets when a mobile phone was reportedly placed under the cubicle.

Two boys and a girl, aged approximately 12 to 14 years old, were seen in the toilet block at the time.

A woman was then heard to have shouted at the group, who ran off.

Detective Constable Daniel Judge, from the Welwyn Hatfield Local Crime Unit, said: “Understandably, this young girl has been left shaken by what happened and we’re keen to trace those involved.

“We’ve been conducting several enquiries to try and trace the possible witness, but these have so far proved unsuccessful. We’re now publicly appealing for the woman to come forward; she is described as being short, with blonde hair. If this was you, please get in contact with us.

“We’d also like to hear from anyone else who may have information about the incident or those involved.”

Anyone with information is asked to please email DC Daniel Judge.
