The second incident took place on Saturday, September 14th, in Albert Road, close to the Bargain Booze shop. A man approached a woman and exposed himself to her before following her towards Skipton Building Society.

The man is described as being white, aged in his 40s and around 5ft. 6in. tall with a large build and bald. He was wearing black tracksuit clothing.

Det. Sgt Phil Pilkington from Pennine CID said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in either area at the time and who may have witnessed any suspicious activity to come forward and contact the police.
