Police and a school have issued alarming warnings to parents after three attempted abductions in a month.

Women reportedly tried to lure young girls into cars in Kent.

Officers are linking the shocking incidents.

Brockhill Performing Arts College near Hythe, Kent, texted parents to warn them to watch out.

The message – also posted on Facebook – read: “Dear parents, please reinforce the message that students need to travel in pairs to and from school and during half term.

“We have had our third attempted abduction.”

Police are linking it to a separate incident in the same area on Tuesday, September 27.

A 13-year-old girl was travelling home from school when she said she was approached by a woman at around 5.40pm.

Again, the woman offered the girl a lift home – and insisted the girl got into her car.

The woman – described as white, in her 30s and of a medium build with short, straight blonde hair and thin eyebrows – walked off when a member of the public got involved.

She was wearing a beige three-quarter length summer coat and was carrying a handbag with beige bobbles on.

She was described as having an Eastern European accent.

Details of the third incident have not been released.

Set Ferguson added: “We urge people to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour.”
