A ONE-YEAR-OLD boy is safe after an attempt to kidnap him from his home in Portsmouth.

It is believed a man entered the back garden of the boy’s home on Ludlow Road, Paulsgrove at 12.40pm today and tried to take the child.

Police have been searching the area around Ludlow Road, conducting house-to-house enquiries, and working with the boy’s family to establish exactly what happened.

Officers say they have no increased concerns for the safety of other children, and have asked the public to remain alert but not alarmed, and to tell them about any suspicious behaviour.

Anyone with information should contact 101.
