Police are investigating after a middle-aged man exposed himself in public.

Dyfed-Powys Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident in Hay-On-Wye, which happened at a well-known bathing area of the river, known locally as The Warren.

The man has been described as lean, pale, not fat but with a big belly, and was wearing a straw hat.

He is thought to be between 40 and 45-years-old.

The incident happened on the afternoon of Thursday, June 25, and it is likely many people visited the spot throughout the day.

Anyone who was there and saw anything suspicious, or if the man's description sounds familiar, is asked to get in touch with police.

Report online at, by emailing or by calling 101.
