*Indecent exposure on March 6 on Euston Grove;

*Indecent exposure on Balmoral Road on April 2.

*A 15-year-old boy has been charged with exposure, assault of a girl under 13 by touching and taking a child so as to keep her from a person having lawful control.

He was due to appear before magistrates at Lancaster on Tuesday.
