Morecambe police are urging witnesses to come forward after a schoolgirl was assaulted by a girl on a cycle track.

The victim was waiting for a friend on a cycle track next to Cartmel Place, Morecambe, at around 7pm on Thursday 12th July when she was approached by three girls. One of them punched the victim in the face before walking off with her friends onto Cartmel Place.

The victim was left with a cut to her mouth following the attack.

The offender is described as tanned, between 15 and 17 years old, with long dark hair. She was wearing a red shirt and black leggings. One of the other two girls had blonde hair but there are no further descriptions of the teenagers.
