A nursery worker has been charged with sexual offences against a child.

Paul Wilson, 20, of Nechells, Birmingham, a member of staff at the Little Stars Nursery in Nechells, was arrested early on Wednesday.

The Crown Prosecution Service said he has been charged with two offences against a child under 13 years, between 1 January 2009 and 30 July 2010.

Mr Wilson is due to appear before Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Jayne Salt, head of CPS West Midlands Complex Casework Unit, said: "Having carefully examined all of the available information which was submitted to us by the police, we have decided that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Paul Wilson."

The CPS said the charges related to one child.

The nursery, run by the Nechells Regeneration Project, has been closed while investigations continue.

A telephone line for parents has been opened with specialist staff on hand to offer advice and support. The number is: 0121 675 4806.
