Police said that anyone approached should not get into the car and report it to them as soon as possible.

Detective Inspector Jon Cross has previously said: "We believe these two cases may be connected and would appeal for anyone who may have seen either incident to get in touch.

"We are aware that reports of this nature can cause real concern in the community and we would like to reassure residents that we are working hard to establish what happened and find the driver.

"Both boys did exactly as we would want them to. They didn't get into the car and reported it to us as soon as possible and I would ask anyone else approached in this way to do the same."

  • If anyone has any information on the incidents, or can identify the man in the E-fit, they should call Humberside Police on 101, quoting reference 16/35678/19.
