PARENTS and businesses in Estepona have taken to Facebook to raise awareness following a suspected kidnap attempt.

According to unconfirmed reports, three young boys were playing together at the Bel Air football pitch next to the garden centre when they were approached by a white van.

One of the youngsters, aged 8, told his mother that a man had got out the vehicle and offered them Playstations and sweets if they got in the van.

Fortunately, the boys knew to stay away and the van quickly cleared off when a woman approached in a car.

Although the police have been informed, parents are being urged to be extra-vigilant and take the time to educate their children about the potential dangers of listening to strangers.
