Schools repeat safety message after boy, 10, approached by driver

Schools repeat safety message after boy, 10, approached by driver

Nicola Hine

The importance of safety awareness has been stressed to children at two schools after a 10-year-old boy was approached by a car driver on Tuesday.

Police appealed for witnesses after a four-door blue car pulled up alongside the boy in Linden Avenue, Maidenhead, at about 8.20am, when he was on his way to school.

The driver lowered the passenger window and called out, which frightened the boy, but no direct contact was made.

Both Furze Platt Infant and Furze Platt Junior schools sent a message out to parents about the incident, and the older children were also spoken to by staff.

The man driving the car is described as white and balding on the top of his head with dark and greying hair of medium length.

He had a moustache and goatee cut short, was of medium build, in his forties, and wearing a white T-shirt with grey writing on the chest.

Police increased patrols in the area after the incident.
