Police are urging parents to review 'Stranger Danger' advice with their children after a suspicious incident in Cheltenham, where a young girl was offered sweets by a man in a car.
They've issued the following advice, and you can review all their safety guidelines here:
Strangers come into our lives every day, in shops, in parks and where you live. Usually, they are normal, harmless people, but some may not be and may want to hurt children.
It's not always easy to tell who is a good stranger and who is a bad stranger. Just because someone looks scary, doesn't mean he or she is dangerous. And a nice-looking stranger is not always a good person.
To stay safe:
- do not go off anywhere with a stranger or get in a car with one
- do not take things, such as sweets, money or gifts, from a stranger
- never play near public toilets
- do not go off on your own; always play with other children and be back home before it gets dark
- if you are frightened by a stranger, go straight home and tell a parent or carer. If you can't run home, tell a safe stranger. Safe strangers are people you can go to for help if you need it, such as police officers, firefighters, teachers or an adult that you know well
- remember, most strangers are good. You don't have to worry about strangers if you follow the rules to stay safe
