Families in Keynsham have been warned to be vigilant after reports that two youngsters were approached by strangers in separate incidents yesterday.

Parents and carers were sent text messages by schools across the town, and in Saltford, asking them to report anything suspicious to police and urging youngsters to walk home in groups.

The alert followed separate reports from two secondary pupils that they had been approached by adults, one in Tesco car park and one in the High Street, on their way home from school yesterday.

The students each told their parents about the incidents, who then reported them to their head teacher. The police and council have also been notified.
