British Transport Police officers are asking the public to help identify a man following a case of indecent exposure. It happened onboard the 10.10pm service from Kings Cross to Peterborough on Wednesday, 25 June.

PC Claire Prouse said: “During the journey, a 21-year-old woman became aware of a man staring at her.

“As the train passed through St Neots, he exposed himself and began touching himself inappropriately before leaving the train at Huntingdon.

“The victim was frightened and upset by this behaviour and rightly reported it to rail staff.”
