The Guardian reports that women are facing an “epidemic” of indecent exposure. Police recorded more than 10,000 cases last year but took fewer than 600 suspects to court, analysis from the paper reveals. Mr Couzens was reported for instances of indecent exposure before he murdered Ms Everard. Vera Baird, the Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales, warned that indecent exposure was rarely taken seriously by police, yet it can be a potential precursor to more serious sexual offences.
