Police have spoken with a woman in connection with the attempted abduction of a toddler from Asda, Belvedere.

A Bexley Police spokesperson said: “A woman handed herself into the police station. She has not been arrested but enquiries are ongoing.

“It has now become operationally necessary to remove the video circulation from our Facebook page.
