A man is due to appear in court charged with four counts of indecent exposure after allegedly flashing on a train, before getting off at Stevenage.

Terry Emberson, of no fixed abode, is due to appear at St Albans Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing tomorrow, Wednesday, after being arrested and charged last month.

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

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

The charges follows a British Transport Police appeal published by the Comet on August 14, when CCTV images were released.

PC Alexei Bobkov from BTP, who is leading the investigation, said: “I’d like to thank the members of the public who came forward with information and the local media for their assistance in publicising this appeal.”
