Police are hunting a man who exposed himself to a 15-year-old girl in Birkenhead.

The girl had been walking along North Road just after 6pm on Tuesday, January 14, when the man stopped her close to the junction with Willowbank Road.

He asked her for directions to Tranmere Rovers and as she did so, he exposed himself to her.

The girl, who was uninjured but left shaken following her ordeal, went straight home and alerted the police.

Patrols attended and searched the area but could not find the man, who is described as being white and wearing a beanie-style hat and grey tracksuit bottoms.

A full investigation is ongoing and anyone with information should call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 2275 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
