A WOMAN is asking people to take care after she was approached yesterday at 12.55pm by a man just out of Swan Road going onto Station Road in Hailsham.

She said he was bald with glasses and short blondish stubble.

She said: “He was in a light copper van as we walked past, he reversed a good way down the road to question us about the dog we had with us.

He was quite persistent after I said it was none of his business.

He then drove forward towards us to say ‘I wasn’t trying to frighten you’.

He could have absolutely been innocent – but you never know, especially at a time like this when dogs are being snatched. Just keep an eye out.”
