A child who was playing in a sandpit in Cheam Park was allegedly asked by two women with another child to 'come with them', police say.

The incident, near Tudor Close, was reported to officers on June 5 at around 6.45pm by the mother of the child in question.

A Sutton Police spokesman said this could have potentially been a misunderstanding and the force is currently unaware of any criminal activity having taken place.

However, he added that people should still ‘remain vigilant’ and to report any information which may concern them on 101 or 999 in an emergency situation.
