POLICE have stepped up patrols in a Cheshire town after reports of a flasher close to a bus stop.

Officers are now appealing for information following the reports of suspicious activity in Congleton.

At 3pm on Friday, November 17, a 15-year-old girl was at a bus stop in Box Lane when she spotted a man indecently exposing himself.

On both occasions the suspect didn’t speak or approach anyone.
