A London-born social media influencer has been arrested on suspicion of grooming under age girls and of paedophilia.

Stuart Burton, who was known online as Stuu, went to the UK from Poland after Polish prosecutors issued a warrant for his arrest following allegations of sexual abuse.

The 31-year-old, whose parents are Polish, found himself at the centre of a scandal in Poland after a string of girls came forward to allege they had either been coerced into sex or received ‘filthy’ messages from the influencer.

Dubbed ‘Pandoragate’ by the Polish media, the allegations came after a fellow influencer posted a video online claiming to have evidence of ‘criminal activity’ and directly named Burton along with other Polish influencers.

The video shows that during his time in Poland, Burton is alleged to have contacted a 13-year-old girl in 2014, proposed meetings with her and sent erotic messages.

Screenshots of conversations, interviews and video recordings posted online also claim that ‘Stuu’ regularly invited girls under the age of 15 to his apartment, allegedly kissed a 13-year-old, and took ‘secret’ photos of them naked in bed.

He had then allegedly told the girls not to say anything as it could affect his relationship with his sponsors.

Prior to his arrest, Poland’s deputy minister of justice Piotr Cieplucha said: ‘They [the victims] have provided information about the huge scale of the horrific practice of sexual exploitation of minors among YouTubers.

‘Bringing the perpetrators to justice is only a matter of time.’

The day after issuing the arrest warrant, Polish police posted on X: ‘YouTuber Stuart B. ‘Stuu’, who has been wanted since yesterday on an arrest warrant, was arrested today by British policemen.’

A Polish prosecutor spokesman said: ‘The evidence collected during the investigation allowed a decision to be brought against Stuart B.

‘The charges concern sexual abuse of minors under 15 years of age and giving alcohol to minors.

‘We are currently waiting for the decision of the British court that will consider our application for extradition of the suspect to Poland.’

Burton has denied all charges and allegations.
