Last night, we reported the arrest of a man on the estate following concerns raised by local people on social media.

Officers now say multiple incidents have been reported since August 15 in the Lyveden Way area, alleging suspicious activity involving a man who has taken pictures, followed children and made comments to them about taking their clothes off.

The children are aged between eight and 13.
