A MUM has gone online to post what happened to her young daughter yesterday afternoon.

She says she will be contacting Willingdon School this morning:

“My 12 year old daughter was just followed down Park Croft by a white male all in black with his hood up holding a bucket.

As she walked faster he picked up his pace….he was initially walking the opposite way to her and on the opposite side of the road but crossed over after watching her and turned to follow her!

She then jogged and he again walked faster…luckily someone stopped in their car and asked him what he was doing! my daughter then managed to get inside our house!

By the time I had gone to find him he was gone!

I just wanted to make people aware who have children round the area. I will be contacting Willingdon School in the morning! It could have been innocent but just be aware.”
