Man tries to abduct girl outside primary school in Portishead then CHASES her in car

The motorist, who was driving a dark blue car, stopped the 10-year-old outside Trinity Primary School in Portishead, north Somerset.

The man is said to have spoken to the girl, asking her to get in but after she refused and ran off he chased her in his car at 8.30am yesterday.

The man is said to be in his 50s and was smoking a cigarette at the time.

Parents have been warned by police to be on their guard and headteachers in the area have been reminding pupils about ‘stranger danger’.

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said: “The girl is safe at home and we’re liaising with the school and the girl’s parents to obtain further details.”
