SCHOOL children have been warned to be extra vigilant after a female pupil was followed by a "suspicious-looking man".

A girl from Testwood School reported being followed by a man after leaving the school site in Testwood Lane.

He has been described as wearing grey ripped jeans and a hoodie during the incident on Monday night.

A letter sent out by headteacher Mrs Pitman said: "A student from Testwood School has reported that upon leaving the school site last night, she saw a suspicious-looking man who then followed her up the road. He was in grey ripped jeans and a hoodie. Please tell your sons and daughters to be extra vigilant and where possible, to walk in pairs or groups."
