Police are appealing for witnesses following a report of a man on a scooter exposing himself to a 17-year-old girl in Dewsbury.

The Dewsbury and Mirfield Neighbourhood Policing Team would like to speak to anyone who has information about the incident which took place at about 11.50am on Friday July 10 on Carr Lane in Dewsbury.
