Police in Westminster have released an image of a man they want to speak to after a 16-year-old girl was followed into toilets in a restaurant.
At about 6.30pm on 15th April, the teenager went to use the ladies loos in Burger King on Praed Street, Paddington. A man followed her into the toilet. After she emerged from the cubicle he stopped her leaving by placing his foot in front of the exit. He exposed himself and made sexually indecent gestures. He then left the restaurant through the fire exit on the first floor.
The suspect is described as a white man, aged between 30-35 years, of stocky build, 5ft 11ins tall, with short black hair and facial stubble. He is believed to be of eastern European origin.
He was wearing a black jacket with black jeans and shoes.
Detective Constable David Roberts said: "This type of crime is very upsetting to the victim; I am keen for anyone with information to come forward. We will treat all intelligence received in the strictest confidence and will investigate every lead."
Royal fans who have spent more than a week camping outside the Lindo Wing where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth received a special delivery direct from Kensington Palace.
Luxury pastries were dropped off to the group of five at their tents as a thank you for their support, as anticipation of the birth of Kate and William's second child mounts.
Two men arrived with a box of these wonderful pastries and said they were from the palace as a gift from the Duke and Duchess to say thank you for our support. It was really special - and we noticed straight away that they were wrapped in pink ribbons. We think it's a sign they are having a girl.
Royal watchers keen for a first glimpse of the royal baby have already started camping outside St Mary's Hospital in West London.
The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth any day now, with her due date reported to be April 25. But, if you believe the odds, the new baby could be born on St George's Day - April 23 is now the favourite, alongside the reported due date, at odds of 9-1.
Nicole Kidman was among the stars to brave the pouring rain at the premiere of Paddington the movie today.
The actress was joined by her husband Keith Urban and actors Hugh Bonneville, Ben Whishaw, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent on the red carpet, in London's Leicester Square. She portrays a villainous taxidermist in the film.
Well obviously, I was the kid that loved the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz, so of course I grew up to be the girl who wants to play the villain in a movie...I know all about Paddington. I had a teddy bear but I also had a Paddington Bear.
I remember being about six or seven and just hoping I would find my own little Paddington stranded on the street.
