They then ran back home to Hemming Way on the Britwell estate in Slough.

Police say the motives behind the kidnapping are not yet known, but both boys were unharmed during the ordeal. Detective Inspector Nicola Hurdley of Thames Valley Police said: “Officers are currently patrolling in the area and anyone who has any concerns can approach officers and speak to them,” she said.
