Man exposes himself to girl, 14, in Rochdale

A man in his 40s has exposed himself to a 14-year-old girl as she walked home from school in Greater Manchester.

Greater Manchester Police said the girl was walking near Scowcroft Woods, in Middleton, when she saw a naked man sitting on a footbridge.

The girl ran off after the man exposed himself. Later in the day on 6 May she spotted him dressing in the woods.

Pc Rob Smith said: "I would urge anyone who may have seen this man in the area around this time to contact police."

He added: "My advice is to avoid secluded areas if you are walking on your own or ensure you are part of a group and be aware of your surroundings at all times."
