Harrogate is the happiest town in Britain but this can lead to a false sense of security when it comes to safety, especially the dangers of child abduction according to a Brackenfield School spokesman.

The Harrogate-based school recently invited their local police liaison officer, PC John Jakes to visit to make the children more aware of Stranger Danger.

“PC Jakes gave the children very important advice about how to deal with strangers and what to do if they ever became lost,” said a spokesman.

“He talked about safer strangers and was very impressed with the level of knowledge and mature answers from the children.

“After assembly the pupils enjoyed an opportunity to sit in the police car and to learn about all of the different roles that the police play in keeping our society safe.”
