Eight people have been arrested following the disappearance of a teenage Vietnamese tourist.

Lihn Le, who is 15 and does not speak English, went missing on Tuesday while visiting York and now could be anywhere in the country, police said.

North Yorkshire Police said she was last seen with an Asian man on the bar walls above Station Rise at 4.40pm that afternoon.

She was wearing a white Ariana Grande jacket, light blue denim shorts and was carrying a white rucksack.
