Police are seeking a man who committed an indecent act in front of a woman on a footpath on Monday (August 4) at about 12.40pm.

The man is described as white, in his forties, about 5ft 8 tall, of medium/tubby build, with dark coloured curly messy hair and a full beard of the same colour. He was wearing a white t-shirt which had black writing on it that was tied into the style of a crop top. He was also wearing blue jeans.

PC Lee Williams of the Hastings Neighbourhood Response Team said: “The lady was understandably alarmed by the actions of this man.

“We would advise anyone who sees someone committing an indecent act or indecently exposing themselves to call 999 immediately.

“This footpath runs alongside a children’s play park so there is a risk he could have been seen by young children. We are keen to identify the man and stop him from committing further indecent acts. If you have information email or call the non emergency number 101 quoting serial 1049 of 4/08”
