Police reassure parents over ‘misunderstanding’

Police have issued an update to earlier reports that a couple had tried to entice a 12-year-old schoolgirl into their car as she made her way home from Longcroft School on Thursday last week. 

As previously reported by Beverley FM, police had warned parents to be extra vigilant while they completed their inquiries and they also appealed for the couple to come forward.

In a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon (July 17), they confirmed they had spoken to all concerned and say they believe the whole incident was a misunderstanding. ‘We believe no offences have been committed. Local schools have been advised of this and we would like to offer the same reassurance to your listeners.’’
