Wayne Couzens appeared in court to face two allegations of flashing - but was not asked to enter pleas amid the ongoing industrial action by barristers.

The 49-year-old former Met Police Officer spoke only to confirm his name at the brief hearing.

His barrister was not present and the defendant was instead represented by a solicitor.

The charges relate to alleged incidents, which are said to have taken place in June 2015 and November 2020.

In the first, he is accused of driving through Dover with the lower half of his body undressed, the court heard.

In the second alleged incident, he is accused of exposing himself to a female cyclist.

No provisional trial date had been fixed.

The case was adjourned until 1 November when legal argument is due to take place.

The former armed officer with the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command has already pleaded not guilty to four separate counts of indecent exposure.

Those charges relate to other alleged incidents at a fast food restaurant in Kent last year – on 30 January and 6 February, and on 14 February and 27 February.
