A MAN who exposed himself to staff at Littleport library has been placed on the Sex Offender's Register for five years.

David Hewitt was originally sentenced for the offence last month - but Ely magistrates had failed to tell him that he must register with the police.

On Thursday the case was re-opened, and Hewitt, of Ryston Road, Denver, had his sentence spelled out to him again.

He has been given a three-year community order, with a condition to attend the Thames Valley sex offenders' programme.

Hewitt had admitted three offences of exposure, and asked for 20 similar offences to be taken into consideration.
