Concerns over two people - one dressed as Santa Claus - attempting to abduct children in Havering are being investigated by police.

A post on Facebook saying the fancy-dressed man and a woman with a push chair had tried to snatch a child was shared more than 1,000 times, sparking fear in the community.

But Havering Police have had no reports of such incidents yet, although inquiries are ongoing.

A spokesman said: “At this time, there has been no reported abduction or attempted abduction allegations in Havering by anyone dressed in a Santa outfit.

“Inquiries are continuing and we would invite anyone with information to contact Havering Police by dialling 101.”
