Man exposed himself to woman on canal towpath

Police are appealing for information following an indecent exposure on a canal towpath on the border of Cheshire and Staffordshire.
At around 9.30am on Saturday a woman got onto the Trent and Mersey canal towpath at the Red Bull pub, Congleton Road South, and walked toward Church Lawton.  As she got to the next lock she passed a man who was wearing all black waterproof trousers and jacket with the hood up and a black face covering. She then realised he was following her and she turned to confront him.
He walked back toward the pub and the woman continued in the direction of Church Lawton, but on her return back along the path toward Kidsgrove the man was still on the footpath near the pub. At this point he exposed himself before running off.
