UPDATE: Statement from Blackpool Police

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Following our earlier post regarding an investigation into reports of suspicious activity in Blackpool yesterday, we have an update.

We received a report that a child had been approached by a man in a vehicle on St George’s Road at some time between 3 and 3:30pm yesterday (13th November.)

Officers have been making extensive enquiries including speaking to the person who made the report. We are now satisfied that no offences at all have occurred.

Speculation and third hand reports on social media can quickly cause concern so we would like to remind people to be wary of misinformation. If you are concerned about any suspicious activity, please report it to police in the first instance.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we carried out a thorough investigation.
