A serial flasher has been warned he faces up to four years in jail if he continues to expose himself.

Belfast man Jason Leonard Shaw, who has a lengthy record for such behaviour, was before the city's Crown Court where he had pleaded guilty to a number of offences.

Delaying sentence for four months, Judge Gordon Kerr QC told the 46-year-old that if continues to undergo specialist treatment and commits no further offences, he might pass a non-custodial sentence.

However, Judge Kerr warned that while the maximum sentence was one of two years, he would pass consecutive terms should Shaw fail.

"This type of behaviour simply cannot be tolerated," said the judge.

Earlier, prosecution lawyer Simon Jenkins revealed that on three separate days in August 2014, Shaw was seen indecently exposing himself in front of a number of young girls, including a number of female Queen's University students.
