Police have scoured 250 hours of CCTV from the Shiphay based nursery which has since been suspended from opening.

The police said the former male worker had been bailed until January 22nd 2020.

Det Chief Insp James Stock said earlier this month:

These appear to be the actions of a lone individual and the offences do not involve the taking or distributing of any images.
