POLICE say they are no longer investigating a 'suspicious incident' in Preston Park. 

It was reported earlier that two boys aged five were approached by an unknown male at the park in Eaglescliffe, near Stockton, on Tuesday.

But a Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: "Police investigating an incident in Preston Park have now confirmed no offences have been committed.

"A carer for the teenager believed to be involved in the incident came forward this afternoon and officers are satisfied that there was no malicious intent in the conversation that occurred."
