A PERVERT followed a terrified woman down the street while exposing himself to her.

The 39-year-old victim was walking in Clay Hill Road at about 6.15am on Valentines Day when she came across a man sat in a bus stop with his jeans and boxers around his ankles.

As the woman walked past the pervert lifted his jumper and exposed himself to her.

He then followed the woman along the pavement until she took her mobile phone out of her bag and called the police.

The flasher then turned and walked away in the opposite direction.

The man was aged between 41 and 61-years-old, medium build and had untidy ginger hair.

He was dressed in dark coloured rain jacket, a blue and grey striped jumper and blue jeans.

He was also wearing grey-coloured loose fitting boxer shorts.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to contact officers at Basildon Police Station on 101.
