A MUM is calling on others to report anti-social behaviour after she and her children were “flashed” at as they walked home from school.

Natalie Halifax and her three children, Aaliyah (7), Rhianna (5) and Ethan (1) were walking along Queen’s Road, Spalding, at about 3.45pm on Monday when one of a pair of men walking towards them dropped his trousers and pants.

As they drew level, the other man apologised for his friend’s actions, but Natalie said she was left “fuming” by the incident.

She said the men were clearly drunk and that the incident is just the latest in a long line of anti-social behaviour she has witnessed in the area.

She said: “I am fed up with it. Fortunately the two older girls were chatting and didn’t really notice, but it is disgusting behaviour.

“There were a lot of children around because there are a number of schools in the area, including St Paul’s and the Gleed schools.

“There are always groups of drunken people hanging around here.

“My kids can’t go to the park anymore because they hang around there and my mum refuses to walk her dog down the riverbank because they sit along there.

“I really think people should report these incidents to the police when they see them in the hope of getting something done.

“I am sure I am not the only one who has had enough .”

Natalie (24), of Dawson Avenue, was walking her two older children home from the Parish Day School when the latest incident happened and reported it to police as soon as she got home.

A police spokesman said a search was done of the area in a bid to trace the two men, but they were not found.

A Police Community Support Officer has now been assigned to the case and will visit Natalie to reassure her.

The men are described as being in their 30s, of medium build with shaved heads.

One was wearing jeans and a black jacket and was carrying an orange plastic bag, which Natalie said was full of alcohol.

Anyone with information can call police on 0300 111 0300, quoting incident 305 of September 19.
