On Wednesday afternoon (May 11), a young child was asked to get into a van as they were walking home from Shakespeare Primary School in Fleetwood.

In an email sent to parents yesterday, the school said that a white van with a man and woman inside pulled up to the female pupil and told her they had sweets for her.

Thankfully the child did not listen to the van’s occupants, and instead ran home.
