Officers were called to an address in Bircotes last night (Friday 15 March 2019) after receiving a report that a man had been attempting to incite young girls aged 13-15 into sexual activity after contacting them online.

Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the report.

Police would like to remind people that this is an active ongoing investigation and legal proceedings are active.

Police added, ‘As such, we would urge people to be careful when posting any prejudicial comments on social media as these could place you in contempt of court.’
