Around 4-30pm on Sunday, November 4th, officers were called after a man exposed himself to a group of young girls in Scott Park, in Scott Park Road.

Later that afternoon a man with the same description exposed himself to another group of children in Lockyer Park, Lockyer Avenue.

The man is white, between 40 and 50 years old and of slim build with short hair greying/balding hair and was wearing jeans.

Det. Sgt Charlie Haynes, from Burnley CID, said: “Although not physically injured, the victims, who were all just 10 and 13 years old, were understandably left extremely upset by what has happened and so I would urge anyone with any information to come forward as soon as possible.”
