High Alert For North Staffordshire Parents

Police have been called in after an online pervert asked a young pupil for ‘inappropriate pictures’.

The alert has been issued in the Biddulph area after contact was made with the child on Instagram.

The affected child is aged between nine and 13 and goes to school in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

One school’s warning to parents states: “We have been made aware of a pupil being approached on Instagram by someone calling themselves Ken and asking for inappropriate pictures to be sent to them.

“This has been reported to the police and they will be following this up.

“We believe it is possible that they may be following other people and would ask that you check your children’s Instagram accounts.”
