Police have launched an investigation after a man exposed himself to a couple as they were out walking.

The incident happened at about 3pm on Friday (July 4) near Forty Foot Drain, in Earith.

The victims were walking near Earith river bridge, near the High Street, when they saw the man walk onto the footpath from the direction of Short Drove.

He took off his t-shirt and then exposed himself as they got near. The victims walked off in the opposite direction while the offender made off in the direction from which he had come.

He was described as white, about six foot, between 21 and 40, and slim. He was wearing beige three-quarter-length trousers and an orange and red t-shirt with a hoop design around the waist.

PC Nicholas Hogg, who is investigating, said: “This was an unpleasant and disturbing incident for the victims and I am keen to catch the man responsible.

“Anyone who recognises the description should not hesitate to get in touch.”

Contact PC Hogg on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
