A MAN has exposed himself to children on a Hampshire school's playground.

Pupils at Hamble Primary School were approached by a man who exposed himself through the fence.

He exposed himself to a "small number" of children before running away.

Headteacher Nicky Redman said: “I confirm that we dealt with an incident today where a man, standing outside our perimeter fencing, exposed himself to a small number of children.

"The children were kept safe and moved inside and the Police were called immediately.

"The police quickly implemented a search of the area.

"Parents have been contacted appropriately and we plan to review the school site and consider measures that could be put in place to avoid a recurrence of this incident.”  

A spokesperson from Hampshire Constabulary said: "We were called just after 1pm today (Jan 11) to report of a man indecently exposing himself near Hamble Primary School.

"We deployed officers and conducted a search of the area.

"No one has been arrested at this time."

Enquiries are ongoing.

The incident follows a man with his face covered exposing himself to children at Hamble Primary School in late November.
