AN email has been sent out warning parents to be wary after a man is believed to have approached a young girl.

The email was shared on a number of Facebook accounts to various groups including Chipping Campden Noticeboard warning parents to be on their guard.

It said: "A young girl walking past his (the man acting suspiciously) car was stopped and asked the time.
