A young boy who ‘touched’ two teenagers ‘inappropriately’ outside a shop in Northamptonshire is being sought by police.

A police spokesperson said one of the boys approached the teenagers and “touched the boy and the girl inappropriately.”

The boy in question was white, between 12 and 14-years-old and about 5ft 2in with short blond hair.

He was wearing a blue chequered suit and had an Irish accent.
