A parent called police after a teenage boy felt intimidated by two men in a parked van in St Albans.
Beaumont School, in Oakwood Drive, sent a letter out to parents asking them to remind their children to be alert on the way to and from school, after police were called about an incident nearby.
A pupil was cycling on Hatfield Road, near Longacres Park, when he saw two men in a parked van. He felt uncomfortable and cycled away.
Police spoke to the boy later in the day. At no stage did the men in the van try to talk to or approach the boy, and they drove away shortly afterwards.
The local Safer Neighbourhood Team will be liaising with the school to offer additional reassurance and advice.
