Police are hunting for a woman who attempted to abduct a 12-year-old boy as he walked to school.

The woman told the boy that she had been asked by his mother to take him to school, and that he should get in the car.

The boy refused to get in the car and instead ran home.

The incident happened at the junction of Chepstow Avenue and Firsway in Sale, Greater Manchester at around 7.30am on Thursday 5 November.

Police Constable Geoff Donley said parents were "extremely worried" by the incident.
