Derbyshire police are talking to a man over an incident where he apparently approached a toddler in a busy shopping centre.

“We received a large number of calls on the back of the appeal and I would like to thank members of the public for their response.
“It was a highly unusual incident and we will be continuing our inquiries into it today.”
