A 32-year-old man has been charged with reportedly making offensive and inappropriate comments to an 11-year-old girl in East Lothian.
The incident happened around 3.30pm yesterday (Wednesday) on Longiddry Beach and the male is scheduled to appear at Haddington Sheriff Court today.
Police are keen to trace an elderly man, who was walking a black terrier-type dog on the beach at the time, and was approached by the girl for assistance shortly after the offence took place.
This male, and anyone else with information that can assist police with their enquiries is asked to come forward immediately.
Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
