A five-year-old boy was nearly snatched by a stranger in broad daylight as he played in a west London park.

A man picked up the child and ran a short distance with him at around 2.30pm on Thursday.

The mum confronted him and the little boy was unharmed after the incident, which happened at Northala Fields in Northolt.

A CCTV image has been released of a suspect, who has a pale complexion, a slim but muscular build, and possibly a moustache.

The picture shows him wearing a green or blue hooded sweatshirt with a small white logo on the chest, ripped blue jeans and black trainers.

Police are appealing to the public for information as they try to identify the suspect.

Detective Constable Ashleigh Nelson said: ‘Incidents of this nature are very rare but I understand the concern it may have caused in the local community.

‘I want to reassure people we are doing everything we can to find out who is responsible.

‘I would appeal to anyone who has mobile phone or dashcam footage of the suspect, which may assist with identifying him, to get in contact as soon as possible.’
