A terrified mother has released shocking CCTV footage which appears to show a van driver attempt to lure her three children to his van using doughnuts.
Rechelle Haigh, 26, has now warned people living on her street about a man who pulled up just yards from her garden where her children were playing.
Her CCTV footage shows her children Sadè, eight, Ameya, two, and step-daughter Roxie, six, playing on a trampoline together. But seconds later a man in a large white van stopped his vehicle by the fence near the garden of their home in Partington, Greater Manchester.

He then shouted over to the three girls and asked them if they wanted to ‘come and get some doughnuts’.But they quickly ran off and Sadè sprinted back to pick up Ameya who remained on the trampoline.
Ms Haigh then chased after the man who was ‘acting weirdly’.
This was her first post about the situation:
