A FLASHER whose trousers were down below his knees outside an Ipswich restaurant told police officers his belt was not working.
South East Suffolk magistrates heard how chef Justin Twyman indecently exposed himself in the town's Queen Street when two young women were nearby.
The 34-year-old from Deans Road, Wolverhampton, admitted a charge indecently exposing his genitalia at the magistrates court in Ipswich yesterday.
Godfried Duah, prosecuting, told the court that police officers driving past saw Twyman outside a Chinese restaurant on May 20.
The officers saw that Twyman's blue jeans were below his knees and that his white boxer shorts were at knee-height.
Mr Duah said: "The police officers could see that his genitalia were clearly exposed. They could see that two young females were walking nearby.

"The police officers said, 'What are you doing?' The response was, 'It was my belt. It was not working properly so they fell down.
"Then he said, 'I am sorry. I was just showing it to the girls'.
"This is a very busy road. Traffic passes picking and dropping people in the town centre. It's also a popular route for night clubbers and people who attend public houses."
Mark Holt, mitigating, said that Twyman had been visiting friends in Ipswich.
He added that nobody has said that they either saw Twyman flashing or were offended.
Mr Holt said: "He would say this was a stupid, foolish, drunken act and nothing more than that."
Twyman was fined £100 and ordered to pay £55 costs.
