He was taken into custody for questioning and later released on police bail pending further inquiries.

DS Gareth Keyte said: “As a result of reports of young girls being approached by a man in a white car Warwickshire Police increased patrols in the area.

“On Tuesday a 23-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incidents, and our investigations continue.

“No offences have been disclosed, and no one has been harmed, but we would like to reassure members of the public that we take all such reports very seriously.

“We would ask parents to reiterate safety advice to their children, and if anyone sees anything which causes them concern they should contact the police.”

Anyone who is aware of any suspicious activity they should report it by calling Warwickshire Police on 101, or if they see what they believe to be a crime in action they should dial 999.
