A brazen couple who had a 35 minute sex romp under a bridge in broad daylight as stunned walkers and cyclists went past have avoided prison. Frank Watt and Cheryl Johnstone also avoided being placed on the sex offenders register over their public escapade on November 5 last year.
According to MirrorOnline, Johnstone was spotted by a CCTV operator at the bridge performing a sex act on Watt as they sat on a wall beside the staircase that leads to the path on the Tay Road Bridge in Dundee.
The shocked worker went out and told the pair to stop at 2.15pm.
But when he got back to his post he saw the pair had in fact escalated – with both dropping their trousers and engaging in full sexual intercourse.
At least five members of the public walked and cycled past the pair as they romped – with the worker again going out to shout at them.
When police turned up 35 minutes after they were first spotted Watt and Johnstone were pulling up their trousers.
Watt, 31, of Tulloch Court, Dundee, and Johnstone, 32, of Hilltown Court, Dundee, both pled guilty a charge of public indecency.
Watt further admitted possessing £10 worth of cannabis when he was taken to police HQ in Dundee.
Defence solicitor Ross Donnelly, representing Watt, said: “He does have convictions for the likes of public disorder. “He has had alcohol difficulties.”
Sheriff John Rafferty fined Watt £300 and Johnstone £135.
Both had their names removed from the sex offenders register having earlier been placed on it pending their sentencing.
