Parents terrified after 'suspicious' man spotted outside primary schools | The Sun

PARENTS were left terrified for their kids' safety after a man "loitered" outside a primary school's gates telling youngsters to "come with him".

The "suspicious" bloke also allegedly handed out flyers to pupils as they went home on Friday.

The man sparked terror after allegedly doing the same thing at two other schools around Dagenham, East London, that same day.

Hunters Hall Primary took to Facebook, warning parents in a chilling post titled 'Stranger Danger': "He was about 6ft tall and middle aged.

"Wearing a small grey hat, black zipper jumper with blue t-shirt and black trousers."

And the school pleaded with parents to "please be extra vigilant this weekend".

Comments on Facebook alleged the man also popped up at Southwood Primary School and Five Elms Primary School.

It's unclear what the flyers said.

Responding to the post, one concerned parent chimed: "He was hanging around Southwood Primary School today handing out flyers.

"And asking teachers and parents and kids to come with him."

A second person added: "Oh god [I will] be on the look out too."
