Attempted abductions outside Telford schools

A woman has attempted to abduct a school pupil outside Hadley Learning Community this week according to police reports.

There is no description of the woman but she was reportedly driving a grey or silver car and tried to convince a child to get in with her on Monday. This follows an attempted abduction outside Windmill School in Brookside last week where an Asian man in a green van offered a child money to get into his van.

On both occasions the children in question have refused to get into the vehicle and have gone for help but not all children are this sensible. Please speak to any children you have responsibility for and make sure that they understand the danger and what to do if they find themselves in a similar situation.

If you have any information that might help you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800555111 quoting reference 485s of October 10th.

There is some useful information on how to educate children on stranger danger on the Netmums website.
