Woman attempting to 'snatch' children in Crawley is 'just being affectionate'

Police have said a woman who people claimed was attempting to 'snatch' children in a Sussex town was just being affectionate.

She has now been warned about her behaviour.

People reported the woman's actions on social networking sites.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: "Police have received reports of a woman approaching children in Crawley town.

"We have identified her and spoken with her about how her actions are causing concern. There is no indication that she wishes to do anything other than show affection. She has however been advised to cease because of how her actions are being interpreted."

It's called "care in the community" and it was started under the Thatcher administration. There are dozens of these people in every town. Brighton seems to have more than its share.

Actually my carer did tell me it was Crawley. I was merely saying that Brighton, where I live, has more than its fair share. It also has more than its fair share of street drinkers, and travellers that don't travel.
