A man has been allegedly caught exposing himself to children in Formby.
The shocking and upsetting scene was witnessed by two young girls and their mother after walking through woodland near St Luke’s Church in Formby on Monday.
The girls were quickly whisked away by their mum and their father, David Harley-Campbell, is now warning others to be on the lookout for the man.
He said “My wife and girls went to the little wood near St Luke’s Church in Formby.
“They had only been there a short time before our girls became pray to a paedophile at around 13:40.
“Luckily my wife spotted the danger and was able to shield them before they saw what was happening!
“There is no way of not being blunt here but he was only a stones throw away from them on a ridge in the tree line fully exposing and openly pleasuring himself, while
staring at the children!
“Their mum saw him and wrapped her arms around them, turning them away while she screamed at him!
“A lady walking a dog was passing by behind him at the time, she saw and heard what was happening she saw him flee the scene. This witness did not stop but we found out later she had called the police.”
