“As a result of enquiries conducted so far, we have not received any other reports of incidents of this nature in Hatfield, however, I would like to hear from any residents in the area who may have had a knock on the door from this man offering childcare.
“He was in the company of a woman, who is described as being of Asian appearance and wearing a hijab.”
