A MAN who exposed himself may also have sexually assaulted two children, say police.

A man was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of indecent exposure following an incident on Bradshawgate in Leigh at 3pm.

Police have said new information has come to light that two girls were possibly sexually assaulted.

They have no further information as to who the girls are, and up to now nobody has come forward with a complaint of assault.

There were reportedly children aged from 12 to 14 in the area at the time.

Police are appealing for anyone who was in the vicinity at the time and saw anything regarding either the assaults and/or the exposure to contact them.

They are also urging the children who were present to get in touch or confide in their parents.
