Detectives are investigating an incident which saw a man sit opposite a woman on a Tube train and attempt to expose himself.

At around 10am on Monday, May 8, on the Central Line between Mile End and Bethnal Green, the man raised his leg on the handrail and began rubbing his groin, police say.

He then attempted to expose himself, to which the victim loudly confronted him before moving away.

The woman saw the man step off the train at Bethnal Green Station and says he shouted at her from the platform.
