POLICE in Trowbridge are to increase patrols at Southwick Country Park after a teenager exposed himself to a woman and a young child.

They said: “We have recently had a report of indecent exposure close to the metal bridge in Southwick Country Park, where what is believed to be a youth has exposed himself to a female and young child.

“Whilst we are treating the matter seriously, we believe this to be a misguided teenage prank rather than anything more sinister.

“The Neighbourhood Team have increased patrols in the area and will continue to monitor the situation.”

If you are visiting the park and see anything untoward, please call 101 and report it to police.
