They say a member of the public saw a man who appeared to be performing an intimate act on the far side of the A5 overbridge near Stony Stratford.

The incident happened between 3.25pm and 3.30pm yesterday (Wednesday), just as children were walking home from schools in the area.

The bridge is near Cottesloe Court in Galley Hill and close to a field in Wolverton Mill.

Police are seeking witnesses

The man is estimated to be in his late forties and was white, of medium build and had dark brown hair. He wore dark blue denim jeans, a black top and a flat cap.

Police are appealing for any witnesses who saw him on the bridge, or walking afterwards towards Galley Hill.

He then made his way back across the bridge to the Wolverton Mill field, before he disappeared out of sight, say police.

Investigating officer PC Jordan Buchanan-Kay, who is based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “This was a shocking incident, particularly as children were in the area having just left school.
