A MAN has been banned from travelling on trains after being caught performing an indecent act.

Christopher Sheead, 59, was caught pleasuring himself in public in Burgess Hill on November 17.

Sheead, of South Street, Lancing, was found guilty of outraging public decency at Brighton Magistrates' Court.

He will be sentenced tomorrow (Jan 12) and was told he must not board any train to prevent reoffending.
