Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page -

PO­LICE have moved to re­as­sure par­ents af­ter re­ports of a man in a van pulling up next to a 13-year-old boy.

Cheshire Con­stab­u­lary said an in­ci­dent re­gard­ing ‘sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity’ is al­leged to have taken place at 7.20pm on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 5, on Wals­ing­ham Drive in Sandy­moor. The boy ran off and told an adult. The re­port comes a cou­ple of weeks on from ru­mours re­gard­ing a van stop­ping and a man telling a boy to board the ve­hi­cle, which was al­leged to have been car­ry­ing a man in a Guy Fawkes mask.

Chief In­spec­tor Sarah Heath said: “I would like to re­as­sure par­ents that there was no at­tempt to grab or speak with the boy, and we have had no fur­ther re­ports of sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity.”
