Police have visited a Northern Ireland school to reinforce the 'stranger danger' message after an incident close to its grounds.

Bangor officers visited Glenlola Collegiate on Thursday following an incident.

In a letter to parents headmaster Mr Thompson said a pupil - along with members of the public - witnessed "inappropriate behaviour" in a car park beside the old leisure centre while she made her way to school.

He asked parents to reinforce the stranger danger message to their children and to ensure they report incidents immediately.

He wrote: "As you know pupil safety is of paramount importance to us and we take all reported incidents very seriously.

"Please remind your daughters of ‘stranger danger’ and to be vigilant."

One frustrated parent said the latest incident happened just around the corner from the seaside town's police station.

Police have said they are investigating the incident.

The latest incident comes following three similar incidents in the Co Down town.
