He pleaded guilty in February this year to the offence of 'outraging public decency by behaving in an indecent manner'.

As punishment, magistrates have now ordered that the man will have to attend appointments with the aim of rehabilitating himself before August 14, as part of a community order.

He must also pay £85 court costs and the standard £85 victim surcharge.
