Witham: Mum's grooming fears after false Facebook profile
2:00pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
Fears over child grooming have been raised after a schoolgirl’s identity was used to set up a fake Facebook profile.
Full-time mum Lianne Cribbs wants other parents to be on their guard amid concerns that the perpetrator may have intended to use the false profile of her nine-year-old daughter Charli Piper to contact other children.
Former Bramston School pupil Miss Cribbs said she found it “hugely disturbing” that someone had used a picture of herself and Charli, and had gone on to post comments about fictitious school friends at Howbridge Junior School, Witham.
