Officers investigating a report of indecent exposure in Canterbury have released a computer-generated image of a man they would like to speak with.

A woman reported to police that a man exposed himself to her as she walked along the wooded path that leads from the Rheims Way towards Whitehall Road on Friday 3 June.

She continued walking to the Toddlers Cove play area where she asked a member of the public for help and he contacted police.

The man is believed to have run off through the Toddlers Cove car park towards Whitehall Road.

He is described as being aged between 20 and 25 years old and was white with very pale skin. He was about 6ft 2in tall and of a thin build. He had a southern accent and was wearing a black shiny padded jacket with the hood up and grey or black tracksuit bottoms.

It is the latest in a series of flashing incidents in and around the city, but police say they are keeping an open mind as to whether this is linked to four previous reports in the Stuppington Lane/Cockering Road area.

PC Michael Larkin said: "Patrols are paying special attention the area and anyone who sees any suspicious activity is asked to call 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.

"We are also appealing for anyone who recognises this image to contact us. Please phone Kent Police on 01843 222289 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting ZY/18240/16."
