A COUPLE has contacted The Chronicle after their car was surrounded by ‘perverts’ demanding they put on a sex show at a Cheshire picnic area.
Christine and Paul Poulter had decided to break their journey back from Ireland to their Hereford home when they endured an horrendous experience at the Broxton picnic site about 10pm on a recent evening.
Mrs Poulter is now demanding the authorities take action at the site, which is a well known so-called dogging site where people indulge in shocking voyeuristic sexual activities.
She explained: “After we had been there about 15 minutes a group of about seven or eight men gathered around our car looking in through the windows.
“We were very scared, my husband opened the window slightly and asked what they were playing at to which one burly guy said ‘Are you and your missus putting on a show?’.
“He asked him what he meant and he said, ‘We were going to watch you and her playing around, are you up for it?’.
“My husband would have got out and given him a piece of his mind but there were so many of them,” added Mrs Poulter, who said her husband then drove off ‘very sharpish’ after the men told them to leave the site in aggressive terms saying they were ‘spoiling’ their fun.
She dubbed the men as ‘perverts’ whose behaviour was ‘really abhorrent’.
Inspector Phil Hodgson of Cheshire Police said: “It’s totally unacceptable and very intimidating and I will be looking to take positive action in relation to the matter if the lady wants to make a complaint to me.”
There have been five incidents since March 1 including three allegations of ‘dogging’ and two involving ‘nuisance vehicles’.
Inspector Hodgson said information had been posted on various websites explaining that people may be committing offences such as outraging public decency.
He added: “It does cause offence to people and the participants are putting their sexual health in jeopardy.”
The ex-county council site is owned by Tommy Lloyd, who runs a burger bar in the secluded car park during the day, where he operates a pay and display policy.
He said: “If we do get a complaint we talk to the police but they say they are doing as much as they can. They do police the area every now and again but without being on there 24/7 what can you do?”
