Reacting to the news, Cllr Phil North, leader of TVBC, said: "I'm sickened that we have had two incidents of indecent exposure in our town recently, and I am particularly horrified that an 11-year-old girl was one of the victims.

"We must alway do everything we can to protect our children. I'm, therefore, glad the police are taking this so seriously and would urge anyone with information on the identity of the perpetrator(s) to come forward."
