‘Don't leave them if they are unwell, call their parents or an ambulance if needs be.

‘I'm sure the parents would rather you call them, than us having to call their parents and tell them that their child is not coming home.

‘Parents, please let your child know what to do in an emergency.

‘It is okay for them to call you, the police or the ambulance service, should they get into difficulty.

‘Once again, a big thank you to the two passing members of the public who found the girl and called her an ambulance.’
