COPS investigating Kyle Walker’s flashing have been slammed for ignoring his “violence against women” after no action was taken.
Married Three Lions star Walker, 32, was questioned by cops on the eve of his side’s FA Cup quarter-final against Burnley.
The Manchester City defender voluntarily attended a police station for an interview for indecent exposure.
He was quizzed for indecent exposure but later dealt with for being drunk and disorderly following a review of all the available evidence.
But cops have now said that the “matter is now closed”.
The England ace was issued with an out of court disposal order reserved for “low level offending”.
Last night, Women’s Aid blasted cops for not pursuing Walker for indecent exposure.
Farah Nazeer, the charity’s chief executive, said: “It’s disappointing to see indecent exposure, a form of violence against women, being ignored and dismissed.
“Indecent exposure can and does lead to much more serious offences, as we’ve seen in the Wayne Couzens trial.
“Whether done to shock or to intimidate, for those affected there can be long-term effects and trauma, stopping women from feeling safe and from living with freedom.

“When there are no repercussions to indecent exposure, it can give the perpetrator a sense of power, reinforcing to them what they can get away with and, possibly, the confidence to see what more they can get away with next time.
“Any indecent exposure must be treated as the serious crime it is and the consequences must demonstrate that it is intolerable.
“Today’s culture of accepting violence against women and girls must end, women’s lives depend on it.”
Despite the probe, Walker was included in England’s squad for the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine.
Gareth Southgate revealed the decision came after speaking “at length” with the defender.
Walker, dropped to the subs bench after the scandal, was filmed in a bar drunkenly pulling out his manhood.
Cops announced they were investigating and seized the two-hour footage, filmed from several angles.
In a statement Cheshire Police said: “On Wednesday 8 March, Cheshire Constabulary was made aware of a video circulating on social media in relation to an alleged incident at a bar in the Wilmslow area.
“Officers have now concluded their enquiries which included speaking to those directly involved.
“A 32-year-old man from Prestbury voluntarily attended a police station for questioning on 16 March.
“He has been dealt with by an out of court disposal and the matter is now closed.”
Walker, dropped to the subs bench after The Sun broke the story, was filmed in a bar drunkenly pulling out his manhood in 90-minutes of shame.
The £150,000-a-week player used the down-time to go on a massive booze bender.
Walker’s group arrived in a blacked-out minibus from the same firm used by City at 5.23pm.
Footage showed him already unsteady on his feet and wearing a puffer jacket and cap.
He staggered to the entrance with one of the women.
Moments later, he approached her from behind and pawed at her breasts before pulling his trousers down and holding his manhood.
A young woman standing next to him then shrieks and points at it as Walker laughs with a pal.
Walker then downed bottles of beer, necked shots and danced provocatively with both women.
He also groped the blonde – not his model wife, Annie, 30 – snogged her and dirty-danced with another as he and pals necked vodka.
The group set off to leave in the minibus shortly before 7pm but Walker was pulled back to pay the £250 bar bill.
Walker was so drunk he was filmed fumbling for his wallet before a pal returned from the minibus and rifled through his pockets for a payment method.
How you can get help
Women’s Aid has this advice for victims and their families:
- Always keep your phone nearby.
- Get in touch with charities for help, including the Women’s Aid live chat helpline and services such as SupportLine.
- If you are in danger, call 999.
- Familiarise yourself with the Silent Solution, reporting abuse without speaking down the phone, instead dialing “55”.
- Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
- If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
- Avoid the kitchen and garage, where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might become trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.
