Naked man spotted in Erewash countryside

TWO sightings of naked men on the same day in countryside around Ilkeston are being linked by police.

A teenage girl riding a horse in Dale Abbey was approached by a naked man in Woodpecker Hill near Dale Abbey at about 12.30pm last Thursday.

The 16-year-old flagged down a passing driver who called police, before the man had a chance to speak to her.

This incident is being linked to another sighting of a man, naked except for an apron, who was spotted by a dog-walker in Manor Floods off the Nutbrook Trail in Ilkeston at 3.25pm on the same day.

The woman described the man as slim and white.

Police searched both the areas when they were alerted but did not find the man.

Anyone with information should call 0345 123 33 33.
