The Bill star reveals horrifying moment creeps in Audi A6 ‘tried to kidnap’ grandchildren by his home
THE BILL star Billy Murray has revealed his grandkids were almost kidnapped by five creeps in an Audi.
The concerned 81-year-old posted a video talking about his daughter’s narrow escape while out for a walk near her home in a small village in Essex.
He said his daughter, her partner and two children were walking in a “little tiny village just around the corner from our little farm”.
The children were picking wildflowers and his daughter’s partner had stopped to take a call when a black Audi A6 blocked off the road where she was walking.
The driver got out to speak to her and was “very familiar with her and chatting,” Billy said.
He claimed there was a passenger and three men in the back of the car.
They were Eastern European, he added.
He said: ” She said he was Eastern European and it was a black four-door Audi A6 and they kept looking at the children. She had this terrible fear all of a sudden. She panicked and called out to Mick.”
Billy said his daughter’s partner Mick could see the passengers getting out of the car and trying to approach the children.
He added: “They were going to kidnap my grandchildren, that’s what they assumed anyway.
“Mick yelled and screamed at them to run. As he ran over from the other side of the road they all jumped in the car and squealed off and tyres were burning everything.”
Billy warned his viewers “they’re still out there”.
He said the family called the police but officers claimed there was nothing they could do because no crime had been committed.
“It’s happening in Basildon and Grays and people are reporting it on Facebook all the time,” he said.
Billy is best known for his role in The Bill as Don Beech from 1995 to 2004.
