Boys’ fear over van

POLICE are investigating reports that a group of Wigan primary school pupils were stalked by someone in a van.

The four 10-year-olds were so worried that the occupants of the white vehicle were up to no good that they told their parents and staff at Nicol Mere Primary School in Ashton.

Details of the incident – on Wigan Road, Ashton near Bargain Booze and World of Furniture last Thursday between 6pm and 7pm – were circulated by Nicol Mere to other schools complete with a “stranger danger” warning.

A police spokesman said that at present no crime has been recorded and that the boys had not been approached but added that officers were looking into the circumstances.
