Second flasher in village

POLICE are investigating if two indecent exposures on the same Stanley Common street are linked.

Last Wednesday, a woman was driving along the railway bridge in Common Lane, Stanley Common, when she spotted a flasher with his hands on his head and his trousers around his ankles standing by the side of the road.

Despite it being about 9.35pm and dark she was able to give police a good description of the offender.

He was about 5ft 3ins tall, of stocky build, with short, dark hair and a ‘chubby’ face. She said he was in his mid-20s.

A flasher opened his coat to a woman driver at the same spot on Tuesday, February 1.

Anyone with information about either incident should call police on 0345 123 33 33.
