A manhunt has been launched in Renfrewshire for a cyclist who slapped a woman’s bottom as he sped past.

He was also wearing a black face covering and his bike was black with red markings.

Constable James Rennie said: “This behaviour is completely unacceptable.

“We will be gathering CCTV footage from that area and reviewing it for any additional information on the suspect.

“I would appeal to motorists and members of the public who were in the area at the time to think back and consider if you saw this cyclist.
