POLICE have reassured parents in Kinver that a reported attempted abduction outside a school this morning did not actually happen.

Officers were called to Brindley Heath Junior School on Enville Road this morning (Friday, October 5) after reports of a pupil being approached.

The school went as far as to issue a message to parents which said: “Please be aware there was a suspicious incident involving one of our children this morning near Potters Cross.

“The police have been involved and will be present alongside staff from both Kinver High and ourselves at the end of school today.

“Children have been reminded about stranger danger in their classes this morning. Please be extra vigilant in light of this morning’s events.”

However, a police spokesperson said the incident had been fully investigated and that they were satisfied nothing untoward had taken place.

The spokesperson said: "This morning Staffordshire Police received a report of a school boy being approached by two men in a grey VW Transporter.

"CCTV has been reviewed and it shows that this was not the case. Officers are currently contacting local schools to inform them of the update."
