Police hunting a man who exposed himself to two women on a train in Chorley have released a CCTV image.

British Transport Police have now called on the public to help trace the pervert.

The incident happened on board the train – travelling between Manchester Airport and Barrow in Furness – as it approached Chorley station.

PC Adam Heslop explained: “As the train travelled towards Chorley, a man began talking to two women passengers and made sexual comments towards the two.

“During the conversation the man pulled down his trousers and exposed himself – motioning

towards the women.”

PC Heslop added: “The behaviour of the man was completely unacceptable and it is vital we trace him as soon as possible.

“Our enquiries to date have enabled us to isolate the image of the man seen in the CCTV image.

“I believe he has key information about the incident and I call on anyone who recognises him – or who has information about the incident – to come forward.”

The incident happened at about 8.40pm on Thursday, October 17.
