Headteacher reassures parents at Kimberley School as police hunt serial flasher
A HEAD teacher has moved to reassure parents after police said they were hunting a serial flasher in Kimberley.
Notts Police said on Thursday four cases of men exposing themselves in the area are being investigated.
Last month, a man flashed at pupils outside Kimberley School.
Officers are linking three later incidents, and issued warnings to parents. Kimberley School headteacher Chris Teal said: "We've not been advised by police that our children are in any danger.''
On Thursday, October 12, outside the school, a man believed to be drunk exposed himself to children after asking them to fight him.
Police initially said this incident had happened on Monday but later corrected the date.
Officers said another incident happened at 6pm on Friday, October 19, in Knowles Park, Swingate, when a man exposed himself to a group of girls.
Then at about 8.30am on Monday a man exposed himself to four 12-year-old girls in Hardy Close. At just before 8pm on Tuesday a man exposed himself to a woman jogger in Eastwood Road.
Police are linking the last three incidents, in which the man was described as fair skinned, either white or mixed race.
Mr Teal added the school had not been aware of the incidents on October 19 and Tuesday until yesterday and had since decided to make an announcement in school warning pupils to take care.
