A couple were caught having sex in public surrounded by four police cars in a brazen act of public display of affection.

The romping pair from Basingstoke, Hampshire, will have to wait more than a month to find out what, if any, action will be taken against them.

A shocked resident told police that they had seen two people engaging in sexual activity in a communal garden on St Michael’s Road in the town.

Four cop cars raced to the scene and surrounded the passionate couple, who were then arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency, and taken into custody.

Naturally, the incident caused much merriment on social media, with Facebook users quick to deliver some appropriate one-liners.

One wrote that they were “arrested for handling swollen goods”, while another penned: “A bucket of water would have done the trick.”

Some others were critical at the extra police manpower needed to arrest the couple.

One wrote: “If someone was being mugged/attacked, police would not want to know… but a free peep show they are there, in four police vehicles.”
