A flasher exposed himself to three young schoolgirls in Kimberley, leaving parents in the town worried about letting their kids out.

The girls reported a man running towards them in Flixton Park touching himself on Monday morning as they walked to school. The mother of one of the girls said she was ‘mortified’.

“They saw him sat on the bench in the park and walked past him, but when they looked back a few minutes later they saw him chasing them,” she said.

“I am absolutely mortified. It’s quite vile against 12-year-old girls.

“If he is going to do that and get that close to them what’s next? What if it was a child on their own?

“The police were great they came out straight away but my daughter was really upset. It really shook her up.”

The girl’s mum who did not want to be named, said she heard there was a second incident Monday morning, and a flasher also struck a couple of weeks ago in Awsworth.

Another of the victim’s relatives said: “It scares everybody to death doesn’t it?

“I am in my 30s and I don’t like walking home on my own.”

A second incident of a man exposing himself in Kimberley was reported to police the following day on Tuesday.

Joggers running along Eastwood Road said they were flashed near to the new Premier Stores at about 8pm.

The man who exposed himself to the schoolgirls near the Flixton Park and Hardy Close area was described as white, aged between 22 and 25, around 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins and was tall with a slim build.

He was wearing an orange, blue and grey beanie hat, a blue Adidas jacket with a logo on the front and light blue stripes on each sleeve, and black Adidas bottoms with white stripes.
