NORTH OXON: Internet rumours of a suspicious white van seen near schools have been dispelled by police.
Police yesterday said there was no cause for concern as there had been no incidents reported.
Insp Dave Hibbert, Banbury neighbourhood inspector, said: “We will take any reports of this nature extremely seriously.
“However, I can confirm there have been no incidents or intelligence where a white van has been driving around schools.”
One woman wrote on Facebook last Tuesday: “White transit van going round Banbury trying to get kids in it!! Warning!! Seen in Bretch Hill area!!”
