In other news: We’re aware of concerns in Popley and Oakridge about children being approached by unknown men.
All reports are being investigated, but none are being treated as attempted abductions. Rumours and speculation on social media sites is not always accurate and sometimes causes more alarm. We will always share as much information with parents as we can as quickly as possible. However, we have to carry out various enquiries to establish the circumstances. (Suspicious Incident)
If you know anything about these incidents, or you have any concerns, please call us on 101.
