POLICE are hunting a teenage flasher who exposed himself to a frightened woman during the early hours of Saturday morning.

The woman passed the teenager in Weston's Stafford Road at around 4.30am, but she later saw him again in Milton Road - when he pulled down his trousers and performed an indecent act.

He then fled along Manor Road.

PC Natalie Bray said: "This is a very serious incident. The female victim has found this extremely upsetting and has been left distressed by the male suspect's actions.

"I am appealing for anybody who may have witnessed this crime to come forward to help us bring this offender to justice."

The flasher is described as aged 18-19, around 5ft 4in-5ft 6in tall, and of chunky build. He was dressed in grey tracksuit bottoms and hooded top, and white trainers.

Anyone with information is urged to call Weston police on 0845 456 7000.
