Local MLA Robin Swann has urged parents and relatives throughout the constituency to “be on high alert” in the wake of two suspicious approaches towards children in Broughshane and Harryville in recent days.

The UUP MLA also called on schools, church Sunday Schools, and youth groups to “play their important role in educating children about the dangers of abduction” after two 10-year-old boys were approached in separate incidents in the borough by an unknown male.

Mr Swann said: “I especially appeal to neighbourhood watch scheme members to be the eyes and ears of our children and inform the police of any suspicious activity.”
