A BRITISH YouTuber has been arrested on suspicion of grooming and sexually abusing underage girls.
Stuart Burton, 31, is facing accusations from a number of girls that he coerced them into having sex or sent them "filthy" messages.
The London-born influencer, who goes by the username Stuu, travelled from Poland to the UK after Polish prosecutors issued a warrant for his arrest, MailOnline reports.
But he has now been arrested in Britain and an application for extradition is understood to have been submitted.
Burton has 4.23million subscribers on his YouTube channel, where he normally posts videos about Minecraft, and a further two million followers on Instagram.
Police Police posted on X, formerly Twitter: "YouTuber Stuart B. 'Stuu', who has been wanted since yesterday on an arrest warrant, was arrested today by British police officers thanks to close cooperation and information provided by police officers from the Office of International Police Cooperation and Liaison Officer.

"The Liaison Officer in Great Britain and police officers from the Office of International Police Cooperation at the Police Headquarters were constantly in contact with police officers in Great Britain, indicating Stuu's whereabouts.
"An arrest warrant issued yesterday made it possible to arrest him."
The allegations, referred to as Pandoragate by Polish news outlets, come after another YouTuber, Sylwester Wardega, uploaded a video claiming they had evidence of criminal wrongdoing – before naming Burton and other influencers.
She alleged that Burton had contact with a 13-year-old girl, proposing meetings and sending erotic messages.
