A man has been arrested on suspicion of indecently exposing himself to an 82-year-old woman.

The 25-year-old, from St Annes, was arrested on three counts of indecent exposure and bailed until June 14.

This comes after the elderly woman was asked for directions in the town on April 17, on Clifton Drive South, at 6.30pm.

She saw the man touching himself in ‘an inappropriate manner’ before he drove off in the direction of Lytham.

Sgt Peter Hannon, the area co-ordinator, said: “Although not physically hurt, it was a distressing experience for the victim and the man responsible needs to be caught.”

Anyone with information can call police on 101.
