Pervert who exposed himself in Burnley pub is jailed

A pervert who exposed himself in a pub has been jailed.

David Nightingale, 75, who has previous convictions for exposure, entered the pub in Parker Lane, Burnley around 5.30pm on June 30.

Around an hour later the female victim noticed that he had unzipped his trousers and was performing a lewd act.

When the shocked victim told her partner what he was doing, Nightingale covered himself up and left.

He was identified via CCTV and arrested yesterday morning (July 13).

Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, Nightingale, of Acre Avenue, Bacup, was charged with exposure.

He pleaded guilty at Blackburn magistrates this morning and was sentenced to 18 weeks. He was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register for seven years.
