Child abducter on the looseSubmitted: 23 Mar 2004

A ginger-haired man is at large who is accused of trying to abduct 3 children since January. A notice that has been given to bus companies reads 'Police are currently asking all bus drivers to pay attention to any adult white males with ginger hair who travel on the bus alone. If the driver sees anyone fitting this description talking to, watching or following children either on to or from the bus they should take steps to alert police...'. Presumably people have been taking this a little too far - police add 'We are not asking to be informed of every ginger man that uses the buses'
