West Yorkshire Police has released an e-fit image of the man who exposed himself to a 59-year-old woman who was walking along Tile Lane, in Adel, on Monday March 21 between 5.45pm and 6pm.

The victim shouted and a male passerby challenged the suspect, who then left the area.

The suspect was described as white, slim, aged in his 50s with dark greying hair. He was wearing a black cycle helmet, with white and red stripes, black wraparound sunglasses, a green jacket, and narrow, black trousers. He spoke with a Yorkshire accent and had a dark-coloured mountain bike.
