A FLASHER who has been targeting women dog walkers in Highbridge could soon be caught on camera by his victims. Community support officers from Burnham have been handing out disposable cameras and personal alarms in Apex Park, in the hope of catching the man. One of the officers, Claire Chambers, said: "The man seems to be targeting women walking on their own, usually dog walkers. "He is usually on a yellow bike and wears a long coat. He then coughs to get the women's attention, flashes, and then rides off. From our reports we believe he is aged about 18."Claire and her colleague Gill Udall have been in the park this week and will continue talking to residents in the park this weekend.Claire added: "Hopefully he'll be caught on camera, or read the newspaper reports and stop flashing. "He is upsetting women and a lot of people are concerned that young children playing in the park might see him." Anyone with information about the Highbridge flasher can call the police on 0845 456 7000.
