A mother is warning parents to be on their guard after her daughter was followed by three men in Shnewater over the weekend.
She has put the warning up on facebook and it has been shared by members across Eastbourne.
The woman said her daughter was followed home in the early hours of Saturday morning (September 5) by a man in a hoodie and two men in a small white van, while walking home along Larkspur Drive, Milfoil Drive and Sorrell Drive.
The woman said her daughter has informed police.
“Please let your teenagers/young adults know to be vigilant,” she said.
“Thankfully she is smart and outwitted them, but it could have been a whole lot worse.”
Sussex Police has been contacted for a comment and the Herald is waiting to hear back from them.
