A man who sexually assaulted two girls who were walking home from school is being hunted by police.

He first walked past a 13-year-old girl and without talking to her, sexually assaulted her.

The man then kept on walking along Silver Street, near its junction with Tanners End Lane in Enfield.

Minutes later, he did the same thing to a 14-year-old girl.

Detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the two assaults.

He is described as white, about 5ft 8in, of medium build and with short black hair and stubble.

He was wearing a great T-shirt, dark body warmer and bright red trousers.

We have been carrying out extensive enquiries to identify this man who we want to speak to in connection with this investigation.
