Police schools’ advice “is a precaution”

Following a couple of reported incidents in the Oswestry area, local schools have been issued with advice by Dyfed-Powys Police.

Two attempted abductions across the border have been followed up by considerable social media chatter over the past month, prompting our police to err on the side of caution.

“Police have been in contact with local schools as a precaution and are advising children not to walk to and from school on their own,” a police spokesperson told us this afternoon.

Last week, Welshpool High School advised its pupils not to walk to and from school unsupervised in light of the suspicious activity a few miles east.

West Mercia Police issued their appeal for information earlier this month after two separate incidents when a 13 and a 11-year-old were approached in Oswestry and Weston Rhyn. The investigation is ongoing but an artist’s impression (pictured) has been issued. The suspect is said to have a Liverpool accent.

As always if you see an emergency call 999, or 101 if there is a non-emergency situation.
