A man who flashed in front of supermarket shoppers in Exeter was traced through his Nectar and bank card, a court has heard.

Keith Daniels, 57, of Ford Street in Drewsteignton, admitted outraging public decency at Sainsbury's.

Exeter Crown Court heard he was seen watching two girls as he exposed himself in the store.

Daniels received a six-month jail term, suspended for two years, and will be under supervision for 12 months.

'Astonishing behaviour'

Judge Francis Gilbert QC said: "You were seen by a lady sales assistant who was extremely shocked, alarmed and distressed by what she saw.

"It is not surprising because this was the most astonishing behaviour for somebody of your age and previous good character, or anyone for that matter.

"To be doing it in Sainsbury's, of all places, is a very serious offence which would have been even more serious if you had known or believed the children were watching you.

"Fortunately they did not seem to be aware of what you were doing."

Daniels, who had already bought his shopping before committing the offence, was traced through his Nectar and bank card. He denied the offence to police when shown the CCTV footage.
