A man from Bingley has appeared at York Magistrates' Court this morning (June 14) after being charged with outraging public decency and breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

The 67-year-old man was arrested in Harrogate on Sunday afternoon after a member of the public reported seeing a man carrying out a sexual act in the Valley Gardens.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Thanks to the vigilant actions and the information provided by the member of the public, the suspect was swiftly arrested and brought into police custody.

"He was subsequently charged with the two offences and was remanded in custody to appear at York Magistrates’ Court today."
