A WREXHAM primary school has issued letters to parents in the wake of 'unusual activity near the school'.

Gwersyllt Primary School has urged vigilance following concerns by parents after what police said was 'an incident' outside the school on Thursday, October 10.

One mum, who did not want to be named, said she is concerned over her child's safety.

She told the Leader: "I feel like the school aren't being very honest with us about what the matter is but that letter now has made us all worried.

"When the children play on the field they can be seen. The school has been granted loads of money but it should be spent on security.

"It is worrying and the school are obviously worried about it but we don't know what it is."

Last Friday, the school issued a letter urging parents to be 'extra vigilant' before and after school and where, if possible, make sure children walk to and from school in groups.

The letter, signed by the headteacher, says 'a number of parents' have contacted the school regarding 'unusual activity near the school'.

The school says it is liaising with North Wales Police on the matter which is investigating the claims and has recommended the school issued the above advice.

A North Wales Police spokesman said: "We were called at 1.28pm to an incident near Gwersyllt Primary School on Thursday (October 10).

"Enquiries into the matter are ongoing."
