Parents of children at Harborough area schools have been alerted to the potential danger of strangers, after two local incidents.
A letter sent out by some schools warns parents of “two incidents you need to be aware of”.
One involves a man in a white van who slowed down near a child who was walking towards school in Lubenham.
The man then speeded up and drove away.
In another incident in Northamptonshire, a man tried to get a young girl into a black cab by offering sweets.
The incident happened after school, close to Rockingham Primary School. Both incidents were reported to police.
Letters told parents: “Remind your children of ‘stranger danger’.”
