Police want to speak to this man over two flashing incidents on London buses.

The image was released after investigators linked to separate incidents which happened seven months apart.

The first occurred at around 2.40pm on the X140 travelling towards Harrow.

A man was sitting on the bus and exposed himself through a hole in his trousers, a statement from the Metropolitan Police said.

On August 7 shortly after 6.30pm a man believed to have been involved in the first incident exposed himself ‘in the same manner’.

It happened on 282 near Moat Farm Road, Northolt.

No arrests have been made. Officers want to speak to the man in the picture over the two reports, which they believe are connected.

Matthew Brown of the Metropolitan Police said: ‘I am asking anyone who recognises the man in this image to come forward and speak to police. 

‘Exposure is treated as a serious offence and no one should be made to feel uncomfortable when simply using public transport.

‘If you know this man, or have any information which could assist this investigation, please get in contact immediately.’
