A suspected paedophile has been arrested in Workington.

A spokesman for Cumbria police said that officers from the force were sent to an address in the town on Sunday evening at around 8.30pm.

They arrested a 59-year-old man, who is from the town.

He was taken into custody on suspicion of inciting a girl aged between 13 and 15 to engage in sexual activity.

The suspect has since been released on police bail while further investigations are carried out by police.
