A 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure following a report from a 14-year-old girl.

Mark Thomas Yemm, of Westerdale Way in Grimsby, was arrested in Bridlington on Thursday 5 February and was charged with sexual offences.

He has been remanded into custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Cockerill, Public Protection lead for Hull and the East Riding said, “This was a disturbing incident for the young girl subjected to this, I am thankful to her for the courage she showed in coming forward and reporting it to us so quickly.

“Incidents such as this are thankfully not as common as some would have you believe, but nevertheless they are unsettling for communities and we take them very seriously.

“I would encourage anyone who may be reluctant to report such things to the police to also have such courage. Unless we know about these incidents we cannot bring those responsible to justice.”
