A 54 year-old woman was cycling along Carberry Road when a small silver car stopped near to her and a man got out of the vehicle. He exposed himself before driving off. The incident took place between 8.30 am and 8.45 am on Sunday morning and any witnesses are urged to come forward.

The suspect is described as white, over 6ft tall with a medium build, short to medium-length brown hair and wearing a t-shirt, possibly with a jacket over the top.

Detective Inspector Paul Batten said: “The female who witnessed this incident did not feel threatened or in any risk, but believed the suspect’s behaviour to be completely inappropriate.
