The suspect then fled on foot towards Kirkdale Vale, but following a CCTV appeal, detectives have now arrested a man on suspicion of sexual assault.

Detective Inspector Chris Saidi said: “This would have been very traumatic for the young girl. Everyone should be able to use public transport without the fear of being subjected to an incident like this.”
