CHILDREN in Kendal have allegedly been attacked twice in the same location while playing during their Easter break.

A ten-year-old girl was playing in trees between Briarrigg and houses in Burneside Road when they were approached by three teenage males at about 5.45pm on Thursday (April 10).

The ‘small’ child fell over after she was allegedly struck on the leg with a stick by a male described as being in his mid teens, wearing a grey hoody with a number on the back, blue or grey tracksuit bottoms and white Nike trainers.
