Parents in Worksop are being warned to be vigilant after a man “exposed” himself to schoolchildren - the third incident of this type in the last month.

Redlands Primary School sent out a text message to parents on Wednesday, alerting them to the latest incident which happened on Monday.

It read: “A man in a blue Peugeot exposed himself to children in the Sparken Hill area. Be aware.”

It comes after a similar incident in which a 17-year-old girl was walking home from Outwood Academy Valley Post-16 Centre on Raines Avenue on January 26 at around 3.30pm. After exposing himself to the teenager, the man followed her in his car onto Prospect Drive where she managed to escape onto the estate before running home.

And on January 13, an Outwood Academy Portland pupil was followed home by two men in a car.

At the time of the last incident, police said there was nothing to suggest they were linked.
