"Thank God the kids were not in the car with me, I just want to make people aware this is happening here in the Algarve.

Mansfield Town CEO Carolyn Radford has issued an emotional plea on Instagram alleging she was 'attacked' by armed robbers 'dressed as police officers' in Portugal.
Mrs Radford, who owns and runs The Stags alongside her husband John, said she was 'robbed' shortly after dropping her children off at school on the morning of November 10.
The mum-of-three was in the southern town of Almancil, Portugal, where the incident is said to have taken place.
She spoke of the ordeal in her Instagram story posted just before 12pm (local time), where she struggled to hold back her tears.
In the video, Mrs Radford says: "Just wanted to make everyone aware that this morning, on the way back from the school run, two men on a motorcycle pulled me over and armed robbed me.
"They were dressed as police officers and attacked me and stole my jewellery. Thank God the kids were not in the car with me.
"I just wanted to make people aware here in The Algarve that this is happening and if anyone has any information please let the police know.
"It was in Almancil and this should not reflect the good people of Portugal, so if anybody can help please let me know."
Mrs Radford ended her Instagram story with a picture of a large ring.
She says jewellery was 'stolen' from her during the incident.
Nottinghamshire Live contacted Mansfield Town Football Club regarding the incident.
A spokesman added: "There is no intention at this stage to add to what Carolyn has put on social media."
