A BARNSLEY school sent a text message to parents warning them about a suspicious incident.

It's reported that the driver of a black BMW made a suggestive comment to a woman walking along High Street, Grimethorpe.

While the woman had a child in a pushchair with her, it's believed that the comment was aimed directly at the woman and not at the child.

She reported the matter to the local school, Milefield, who then alerted police and other parents.

DCI Deb Mahmood said: "We're aware that a text message was sent to parents of children at a Grimethorpe school informing them of the incident.

"Local officers are making enquiries into the matter. I\m satisfied at this time that this incident is not connected to any others. However, if anyone has any concerns please contact us."

Anyone wishing to report suspicious activity should call 101.
