A 'chubby' flasher exposed himself to a teenage girl at Lydiard Park. 

Close to the Gower Close entrance, the girl said she saw a naked man walk out of some bushes and walk around.

He is described as white, around 50 years old and of a chubby build. He did not approach the girl or say anything to her, just walked around. 

The teen walked away quickly and said she was not followed.

Local crime investigator, Laura Price, said: "The girl involved was not approached or spoken to by the man, but it obviously frightened her and she did exactly the right thing by leaving the area and reporting the matter to the police. 

"It may be that there is an innocent explanation, perhaps he was suffering a mental health episode, as the man did not seem to even make eye contact with the girl.

"However, we need to investigate this to determine exactly what happened."

The incident happened on Thursday, September 12 at 4.30pm.

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54190090689.
