Parents urged to be vigilant after children chased in Cumbrian village

PARENTS have been urged to be vigilant after reports of a man chasing children in a Cumbrian village.

Police have received reports of men chasing children in the Hawkshead area.

The children did not come into contact with the men that were chasing them however were understandably distressed.

The men who chased the children have been described as wearing dark clothing and hoodies.

Sergeant Bill Nolan, of Ulverston and Lakes Neighbourhood police, said: “Patrols have been increased as a result of the report received on 20th March and suitable advice was immediately given to youth groups and schools in the area.

“From the information received it appears this has occurred on three occasions since January.

“However, the first two incidents and information surrounding them were not reported to Police.

“Therefore we are keen to encourage the public to call Police with information of any incidents that cause alarm or distress to any persons.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 101.

Have your say

where the other two incidents in hawkshead or where they in different area. hope the children are ok. something needs doing about incidents of this type as there was children approached in barrow to last year but no one seems to get caught etc
