A man has been placed on the sex offender register after pleading guilty to four counts of indecent exposure.

Terry Emberson, of no fixed abode, appeared St Albans Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing yesterday, Wednesday, after being arrested and charged last month.

The 47-year-old initially pleaded not guilty to all four counts, which relate to indecent acts at Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City stations on July 19.

A 17-year-old girl was flashed at on a platform by Emberson, before a woman in her 60s and her 11-year-old granddaaughter were targeted while on a train heading to Peterborough.

He was charged following a British Transport Police appeal published by the Comet on August 14, when CCTV images were released.

Emberson has been remanded in custody and is due for sentencing on September 24.
