Detectives have issued an appeal for witnesses and information following an incident of indecent exposure on the night of the vigil for Sarah Everard in south London.

The Metropolitan Police said a woman was walking on Clapham Common South Side, near to the junction with Windmill Drive, at around 8pm on Saturday when “she witnessed a man expose himself”.

The force said the man is described as “white, aged approximately 50 years old, around 5ft 6ins tall with grey hair” and that he was wearing “a red waistcoat or vest over a shirt and light-coloured trousers”.

The woman who witnessed the man expose himself lodged a complaint with the Met after attempting to report the incident to officers at the scene of the vigil.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said: “The woman attempted to report the incident to officers who were at Clapham Common as part of the policing operation for the vigil.

“A complaint was received by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards. This was resolved to the satisfaction of the complainant.”

Crowds gathered on Clapham Common last weekend to join a vigil in remembrance of 33-year-old marketing executive Ms Everard, whose death triggered an outpouring of grief and anger at violence against women.

Detective Constable Luke Flood, from the Met’s Central South Command Unit, which polices Lambeth in south London, said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and can help identify the man involved to contact police.

“Clapham Common was extremely busy on Saturday evening with people who had attended the vigil – many people would have been filming or taking pictures.

“I would ask anyone to check any material they captured and see if they can identify the man described.
