Police are growing increasingly concerned about a missing teenager.

Leah Hazleton, 16, was last seen in Selston - on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border - at 2.20pm yesterday.

She is around 4ft 11in tall with brown shoulder-length hair and of medium build. It is not entirely clear what Leah was wearing when she went missing but she often wears bright red lipstick.

Inspector Paul Hennessy, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We are becoming increasingly concerned for Leah's welfare and we are now approaching 24 hours with no contact from her.

"I want to reassure Leah that her welfare and safety is the priority and she is in no trouble whatsoever.

"I would appeal to her to just contact us so we know she is OK or to anyone with any information to assist us by making contact.

"Leah is known to have links in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, West Midlands and Kent and our appeal now extends this far.

"If you have any information, please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 481 of March 24, 2018."
