POLICE are urging parents to remind youngsters of 'stranger danger' after a report of a man behaving suspiciously on Sycamore Lane, Great Sankey.

Texts were sent to parents of pupils in schools in the area after the man was spotted walking behind a boy and girl yesterday, Wednesday, near to the library at 8.30am.

Sergeant Gordon Jack said no attempt was made to ‘talk to or touch either child or coerce them in any way’ but added police presence in the area has been increased.

A spokesman added: “Police take all reports of this nature seriously and are keen to reiterate to parents and children the issues around 'stranger danger'.”

Call Cheshire Police on 101.
