Sarah Everard’s killer Wayne Couzens has pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to three counts of indecent exposure between November 2020 and February 2021.
He appeared in court via video link and admitted exposing his genitals in a woodland in Deal, Kent, on November 13, 2020, and twice at a branch of McDonald's in Swanley on February 14 and 27, 2021.
The last count on February 27 was just five days before the police officer kidnapped, raped and murdered Everard.

Couzens, 49, is due to be sentenced on March 6.
Prosecutors decided it was not in the public interest to seek a trial for three other counts against him.
He also pleaded not guilty to another indecent exposure charge relating to an alleged incident in June 2015. He will not face trial over that charge as it was left on file.
Couzens, a former diplomatic protection officer with the Met Police, is serving a whole-life sentence in Frankland jail for the murder of Everard, 33.
A vetting check when he joined the Met failed to flag up that his car had been linked to an alleged exposure incident in Kent in 2015.
One police colleague described Couzens after his arrest as “an oddball, a weirdo,” adding: "There were rumours about him being a pervert."
Couzens had been absent from work on a number of occasions in the weeks running up to March 3, 2021, when he killed marketing executive Everard.
A former colleague said: “No one knew why he was off sick, but you have to wonder now what was going on.”
Couzens handcuffed Everard under the pretence that she had broken Covid lockdown rules.
Her burned body was found in a pond in woodland in Kent.
