Stranger danger warning for kids

Schoolboys

Kids in Birmingham are being warned to be on their guard in the city after one girl was abducted and an attempt was made to snatch another.

The 12-year-old got away unharmed after being pulled into a man's car, while a nine-year-old ran away when she was approached by a man she didn't know.

Lots of police are hunting for the men, who both drove dark green cars.

You shouldn't talk to strangers, and if someone you don't know tries to talk to you, tell an adult you trust.

Police are studying CCTV footage to try to find the men.

They're also visiting schools in the area to give kids advice on staying safe when they're walking around on their own.

Anyone with any information should tell the police.
