A spokesperson for the Isle of Man Constabulary told Manx Radio: "We understand the concerns of anxious parents following Manx Radio's story.

"We would like to reassure the public that we know the identity of the person involved and there are no grounds to believe that the male is a threat to children.

"He himself is a vulnerable adult with special needs and we are working with our partners at Manx Care to make sure his welfare is properly supported.”
