The nature of the man’s relationship with the children has yet to be revealed by police.

His appearance was described as ‘solid’ by cops, who said he is around 175cm tall with a shaven head and full bushy beard with multiple face and body tattoos.

One of the man’s face tattoos read ‘Why so serious?’, a nod to Batman villain Joker’s catchphrase from the 2008 movie the Dark Knight.
