A couple who were extremely intoxicated while they had a steamy outdoor sex session within the view of families and children left onlookers horrified.
Chloe Dobson, 21, and her partner, Peter Penman, were spotted by a family, with their three children, in broad daylight at around 8pm on June 2 earlier this year.
The shocked father took out his phone and took photos of the couple, which he sent to the police. He also clarified that it was clear to him, his wife and their oldest child what was going on after seeing Dobson "bouncing" on her partner, reports Lancashire Live.
After receiving a report, police arrived at the scene to witness Dobson pulling up her trousers. The court heard that the couple were extremely drunk.
Sentencing, Recorder Graham Lowe said: "This is a serious offence, this type of behaviour in a public place should not be tolerated. It is aggravated by the fact it was in the presence of children 80 yards away."
A pre-sentence report stated Dobson was "extremely vulnerable" and does not have a particularly mature outlook on life.
"Your thinking skills and ability to deal with things appear to be wanting", Recorder Lowe said.
He handed Dobson a 12 month community order with 25 days rehabilitation activity requirements and said she must continue to work with The Well support centre to address personal issues and ensure she does not offend again.
Penman, of Ramsden Street, Barrow, will be sentenced at a later date.
