Police are hunting for a man who flashed at an 80-year-old woman in a Perthshire village.

The incident happened on a secluded patch of woodland in Luncarty, along a path that is accessed from Scarth Road, Tayview and Hatton Road at around 2.40pm on Tuesday afternoon.

Police believe the indecent exposures are linked and the same person is believed to be responsible for both incidents.

The suspect is described as being in his early 30s, slim build with a tanned complexion, short dark hair and facial hair, and was wearing a grey long sleeved top.
