A Canterbury architect has appeared in court accused of spending his lunch hours exposing himself to women working at shops in the city.
Gareth Leggeat, who works at Clague in the Burgate, is charged with four counts of intentionally exposing his genitals so that someone seeing them would be caused alarm or distress.
Prosecutors say that between 1pm and 2pm on three different days in August and September, Leggeat went into Marks and Spencer, Poundland and Wilkinson twice.

The 38-year-old is alleged to have picked up items, including paint and odour eaters and exposed himself to lone women working at cash tills.
They claim that in each case his trousers were undone and the victims could see his penis.
Leggeat, a father-of-two who lives in Amage Road, Wye, has denied all the charges.
