British holidaymakers have been moved after a child-snatching gang trying to lure youngsters into cars allegedly struck at a Thomas Cook resort in Cyprus.
Thomas Cook told ITV News that around 50 people were put in different hotels following the incident at the Anastasia Beach Hotel in Protaras on June 16.
A witness said a couple led two young children towards a waiting car and another person had a "third child up against a wall ready to go, too".
It was reported that those involved were dressed as hotel staff.
"Someone spotted what they were up to and stopped them - if he hadn't been there, those kids would have gone," Greg Letford said in an interview with the Daily Record.
The Foreign Office said it was a "concerning incident" and confirmed it had provided assistance to a British family.
A Thomas Cook spokesperson said:
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman told ITV News: "Our consular officers provided advice and support to the family involved following this concerning incident.
"This is now a matter for the local police who are investigating."
The Anastasia beach complex, on the eastern tip of Cyprus, is described on the Thomas Cook website as being a "perfect family choice".
