Parents have been told to stay vigilant after two men in a van allegedly tried to abduct kids outside a school in Clapham.

The pair reportedly targeted children outside Eaton House School at around 7.30pm on October 31.

Parents were informed of the alleged incident by the school through email on November 1, as reported by The Telegraph.

Sarah Segrave, principal of the Clapham school, said: “It has come to our attention that there was an attempted abduction of children last night by two men driving a dark grey van.

"Be vigilant and report any concerning situations to the police immediately”.

She added that parents should consider whether they want their children walking home alone in the dark.

A spokesperson for Metropolitan Police said it has no record of the incident being reported, according to the Telegraph.
