Video: Shocking CCTV of the moment a woman is abducted and forced into van

This is the terrifying moment a woman was abducted and forced into a van by a group of three men.

CCTV footage captured the moment the woman was abducted when she was walking along a road at approximately 12.30am on September 19.

The woman was driven to a pub in Astley, near Wigan and told to hand over cash.

The group of men used a cloth to cover her face and stifle her screams.

Police reported how the men also made threats to throw her into a canal.

Officers are now appealing for information and have asked people to contact police on 101 and quote the reference number 55 of 19/09/16, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
