Locking car doors driver safety

Recently there have been frequent reports of a man standing by the side of Mill Lane, Underriver, Sevenoaks, attempting to flag down passing drivers.  He tells the driver that his wife is in labour and asks for assistance to jump start his car.  On occasion he has become aggressive if the driver has not unlocked the door or refused to help.

He is operating on country lanes from Orpington to Maidstone and appears to be targeting lone women or women with children in the car.  If you see or are approached by a man waving at your car to stop, do not stop. Do up your windows, lock your doors and carry on your journey.

If you are stopped by this man please report it to the police via the Live Chat in the first instance, or by calling 101.  In an emergency, please report to 999.  Please share this information with your family, friends and work colleagues.
