Naked man spotted near Arbroath play park

Police are hunting for a "mop head" man with a pot belly seen naked near a children's play park in Angus.

The man was seen "acting suspiciously" by a dog-walker near Spink Path, Arbroath, at about 13:20 on Saturday.

The scene is known locally as the "dammy area" and is close to a children's play park.

Police Scotland said the man is believed to be aged in his early to mid 20s, about 5ft 7ins tall, of heavy build with a "pot belly".

He had brown or fair hair in a style which the witness described as a "mop head". He is also believed to speak with a local Scottish accent.

The weather was sunny and warm at the time and there would have been a large number of people attending or passing through the area, police said.

    Hot and sunny 07:30: BBC Scotland Weather Latest

    A cloudy and misty start around North Sea coasts with some mist also to be found through the central belt, burning back to leave another fine, hot day with plenty of sunshine.

    It's the last day of high temperatures, which could reach 27C or 28C across central and western Scotland at best. Cooler on the east coast and for eastern cities, but still pleasant once the haar moves away.

    For the Northern Isles, the haar lingers, but some good spells of sunshine coming through the west of Orkney where it could reach 23C. A risk of a few afternoon showers across the Highlands, set off by the high temperatures, some of which could be sharp.

    For a full forecast go to the BBC Weather website.
