The principal of Millington Primary School has sent out warnings to all parents after a suspected ‘approach’ to a four-year-old boy.
A mother had just left the school on Monday with her son when a black people carrier, with three people inside, appeared.
A woman in the car pointed at the child, and the vehicle proceeded to pull up alongside him. It drove off when the boy’s mother ran up to it.
Principal Mrs Heather Murray phoned the police after being alerted to what had happened and quickly sent out a text message to all parents.
She said, “His mother was very scared. From the school’s point of view, I wanted to get the message out to parents that this incident had occurred and to make sure they know the whereabouts of their children and that they are safe.
“Our concern is first and foremost the safety of the children. We want to remind parents to be extra vigilant, particularly on these nice summer evenings when children are out playing late.”
