What would your child do if approached by a stranger?

An investigation by ITV's Daybreak has looked at what a child would do if they were approached by a stranger.

The show recruited volunteer parents, whose children did not know they were being filmed, and a close protection officer, who played the part of a stranger.

Nine children were approached in a park by the 'stranger' and as Daybreak's Daisy McAndrew reports, a worryingly high number of them left with the man.
