Parents have been warned to be vigilant

St Peter’s Catholic High School in Orrell sent a text to parents warning them to be vigilant after pupils from another school were approached by a man online.

The man, which the school named but we have chosen not to for legal reasons, is then reported to have sent the pupils indecent material.

The text reads: “We have been informed that a person has approached pupils from a local school online and sent indecent material. Please be vigilant.”
