A MAN who is accused of masturbating while driving through Dodworth on the M1 will appear in court today.

Biology students aged 17 and 18 on a bus were the alleged victims of 45-year-old Nicholas Ketteridge, Chantel Lowery-Green, prosecuting, told Barnsley Magistrates' Court.

She said the teenagers were 'extremely distressed'.

John Jones, defending, said it was a 'quite serious' matter. 

Ketteridge made no plea to a charge of indecent exposure and will appear at Sheffield Crown Court today.
