A WOMAN is warning others to be aware after a man exposed himself to her.

The woman, who is 19, was walking home from work in Colchester at 6.30am on Sunday morning.

She was coming to the corner of Abbot's Road, by the BP garage, and noticed a silver van.

She said the driver was short, in his 40s with black hair.

She said: "I walked past his window and he was just staring and I felt odd, so I turned around and looked again and he had his penis out."

As she has been working on night shifts she has not been able to contact police, but wanted to make other women in Colchester aware.
