Two men were allegedly spotted taking pictures of children in a park.

Police were called at 2.19pm yesterday with reports of "suspicious activity" at Manor House Gardens in Abbots Langley.

The two men did not attempt to approach the children but were said to be seen taking pictures of them.

Sergeant Chris Simmons said: “I understand that news of this incident will leave parents concerned.

"Officers from the Safer Neighbourhood Team will be visiting the park as part of their patrols and parents should not hesitate to contact us if they see anybody behaving in a suspicious or concerning manner around children.”
