Police are looking for a man in connection with reports of someone exposing themselves on trams on several occasions.

Nottinghamshire Police said a man is believed to have carried out "multiple acts of indecency" on two separate trams in front of groups of women and girls.

In the first incident, the man is believed to have exposed himself in front of two women on a tram in Cator Lane, Beeston, Nottinghamshire on Saturday, 7 May.

The same man then reportedly exposed himself to two girls, aged 16 and 17, at around 11.40pm on a separate tram from Toton Lane, Stapleford, to Hucknall.

The force has now released images of a man they want to speak to in relation to the incidents.
