A man will appear in court charged over an incident in which a young girl was allegedly carried off by a stranger at a supermarket.

The three-year-old was plucked from a moving walkway at a Morrisons store on Railway Road in Blackburn on Thursday.

She had been walking to the car park with her mother and five-year-old sister when she was allegedly picked up by a man who carried her a short distance before putting her down again, when she ran back to her mother.

Mohmed Dadhiwala, 44, of Chester Street, Blackburn, was charged with taking a child so as to remove them from a person having lawful control, Lancashire Police said.

He will appear at Blackburn Magistrates' Court on Monday.
