A man has been charged by police after allegedly flashing a group of kids in Colliers Wood.

The police account for Colliers Wood MPS took to Twitter earlier this week to share news of the arrest.

"A male indecently exposing himself in front of children in Wandle Park, following a 999 call from a witness, detained by @MPSColliersWood," it read.

"Charged and remanded #safestreets."

Although it was not make clear when exactly the incident took place, nearby residents did report seeing a large police presence in Byegrove Road on Saturday morning.

The Met have been approached for further details.

The tweet did not go unnoticed either.

Councillor for Colliers Wood, Laxmi Attawar, retweeted the message and added "thank you Colliers Wood Police."
