A 21-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident, near Rossall School, has been released without charge.

The man, from Thornton, was arrested after an Evofit image of the suspect was issued last month.

It follows reports a man indecently exposed himself on the coastal path behind the school at around 7.30pm on August 18.
