Police have released an image of a man who is suspected of indecently exposing himself to a woman on a bus in Romford.

The incident happened after 2.10am on Friday, November 9, 2019 when a 22-year-old woman was sitting near the front on the upper deck of a 175 bus heading towards Dagenham.

At the next stop a man, in his early twenties, boarded and sat behind her and then indecently exposed himself for some time.

Once the woman realised what was happening she exited the bus and the suspect left the bus at the next stop.
