A man was given a word of warning from police after he was reported to have exposed himself in a playing field.

The incident happened on Monday, August 10 when a jogger raised the alarm with a sports coach who was training a group on the Harecroft Road playing fields where the man was spotted.

In a joint statement from Wisbech Town Cricket and Hockey Club (WTCHC), who use the facilities, police officers were called before making an arrest, although a Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said no arrests had been made.

The clubs are now asking for the public who have more details on the jogger and/or the incident to contact them or Cambridgeshire police.

A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said: “Police were called on Monday at 6.45pm to reports of a man urinating in public in Harecroft Road, Wisbech.

“Officers attended and spoke to the man, giving him words of advice about his behaviour.”

“Anyone that has got any information from the jogger’s point of view, we’re really keen to understand who that is. We would also like to find out who they are and to thank them.”
