There is no procedure in UK law to remove the caution from your record - but it is now spent and will not appear in a standard check. However, given that you are working with children or vulnerable adults, the caution will still appear in an enhanced check. Unfortunately, it is too late to "appeal" the caution, so it will remain on the record. I am very sorry if this is not the answer you were hoping for but I have a duty to give you an honest and objective opinion on the law.
You could have done at the time - or appealed by way of Juducial Review. But sadly it's too late now and the other problem is that there will no longer be any record of such conversations or your custody record; but you could ask DBS not to disclose this an go through the appeal process: https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/appeals-and-disputes
