Cops have arrested a man following an incident outside of a school in Byker this morning 

At 9:32am on Monday, February 6, we received a report that a man had been seen sitting in a car touching himself inappropriately in Bolingbroke Street.

Officers attended and a 33 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency. He is currently in police custody.

Because the incident happened near to a school officers will be in the area carrying out reassurance patrols for the rest of the day.
