A man who repeatedly exposed himself on public transport has been jailed and banned from using London Underground.

Ion Iorga, 40, of Kingsgate, Wembley, was jailed for 15 months last week after having previously pleaded guilty to exposing himself in Harrow while travelling on the Metropolitan Line.

He was also given a five-year sexual offences prevention order, which bans him from travelling on any London Underground train, or entering any Tube station between 6.30pm and 5am until 2019.

Iorga was caught after he exposed himself in front of female passengers on July 3 last year.

After his arrest it was found he was wanted for four previous incidents betweeb April 2012 and July 2013.

Detective Constable Stephen Allen of British Transport Police said: “This was an intimidating and very upsetting experience for all of the victims involved and I’d like to commend them for assisting officers during the investigation, which was vital to securing the conviction of Ion Iorga.”
