A man who reportedly "flashed" members of an Inverness community council at the end of a virtual public meeting has been reported to the police.

Inshes and Milton of Leys Community Council were shocked when, at the end of a public meeting, to discuss a local housing development a member of the public showed his bare behind to the group.

Police have told the community council they are investigating the incident as a "sexual offence".

The "streaker", who signed into the meeting only as "Zoom" was only visible to users at the end of the meeting after having his camera switched off for the duration.

As the meeting was winding up "Zoom" turned his camera on, and is said to have streaked across the screen.

One member of the public, who did not want to be named, said he was shocked.

He said: "People say there is nothing as boring as a development meeting, but this shows that anything can happen."

While the community council did not get a good view of the man's face, they believed he was a man in his late 30s/ early 40s.

He reportedly walked across the screen away from the camera, with his back to the screen at all times.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Officers have been made aware and enquiries are at an early stage."
