A short while ago we had a report of an adult approaching some children in Clanfield – another incident has occurred and this time a female driving a white car. Please pass the warning on and let the Police know if you can help.
On Tuesday 26/01/16 a suspicious incident occurred in the CATHERINGTON LANE and MERCHISTOUN ROAD areas, whereby a female approached some pupils asking them to get into her vehicle. The female appeared to be drunk and shouted abuse at the children once they declined and headed off away from her. The vehicle was described as being a small white car with the front badge missing. Please speak to your children to make sure they are walking to and from school with friends and are vigilant at all times, or if possible drop them off and collect them yourself. High visibility patrols will be carried out and the schools in the area have been notified. Please report any suspicious activity to police and ensure that your children feel confident to contact police using the emergency 999 number if they feel scared or threatened when they are out and about alone.
