An unnamed male transvestite was arrested in Londonderry on suspicion of indecent exposure in April 2013. Two women out walking in the area in broad daylight were alarmed by a man exposing his genitals while dressed only in tights and suspenders.

Police confirmed a 59-year-old man was arrested in the Victoria Road area of the city on suspicion of indecent exposure. He was questioned and released on police bail pending further inquiries. The outcome of the case is unknown.

A local councillor said such incidents were now a nightly problem with “up to 150 adults gathering to indulge in sexual and deviant activity in the Prehen and Ness woods areas”.
