The nine-year-old was walking to school along Plas Newydd, Deganwy at approximately 8.50am when two men got out and asked him to get into their car.

North Wales Police said he ignored the men and later reported the incident to staff.

It added the men made no attempt to physically get hold of the pupil nor did they pursue him to school and he was unharmed.

Extra ‘high vis’ patrols were deployed this morning following the incident.

Anyone with more information should contact the police by calling 101.

This incident will understandably be of significant concern to the local community and particularly parents and other local schools.

Enquiries are underway to establish the identity of the men and car and the pupil is being further interviewed by specialist officers to obtain a full description of the men and I would ask anyone who can assist to contact Police immediately.

In the meantime I’d like to personally reassure the community that everything possible is being done and increased patrols and a Police presence will continue particularly around school times”
