Amanda Holden appeals for info on 'scumbags' who tried to kidnap child

Amanda Holden has appealed for information on some "scumbags" who appeared to try to kidnap a child

The TV presenter shared CCTV footage of two masked men getting off motorcycles driven by two more men and attempting to take a child from their mother.

The video shows the woman running to the opposite side of the road behind a truck. The driver of the truck then stops to help.

Sharing the footage, Holden wrote:

"So this I know is happening everywhere but this was Sandpits Road Tw10 -21st June 12;35 broad daylight.

"Mother and child attached. And some #Heroes in a lorry chased them off. Call 101 or 999 if u know these scumbags."

The attempted kidnapping occurred in Richmond, London last week.

Local police have said that they are aware of the situation. They said it was an attempted robbery and is currently being investigated.
