Parents are being urged to be vigilant after a man tried to abduct a 12-year-old girl in Shepway.

The girl was with a group of others returning from a day trip to London when the man tried to snatch her at Sandling Station near Hythe.

The man followed the youngster o­n to a footbridge and grabbed her but the girl screamed and the man fled.
