Police Hit Out at “Damaging” Speculation

Fife Police have hit out at a trend of “damaging social media speculation” which they believe is spreading false rumours. The comments have come as both Fife Council and Fife Police have confirmed there is no substance to allegations of an attempted abduction at Buckhaven Primary School on Tuesday.

There was a detailed inquiry which included reviewing CCTV footage. Police have now spoken to a woman in relation to this matter and believe it to have been a misunderstanding.

While we understand the concerns raised by Fife Police, the Fife News Online team would encourage our readers to be vigilant and to report any matters of concern to the police directly. Phone 999 in an emergency or 101 to talk to local police in a less urgent way.
