Shameless couple leaves family horrified by romping on public towpath

Shameless couple leaves family horrified by romping on public towpath

Officers were called to the scene

One couple left a family beyond horrified after being caught fooling around on a public canal towpath.

The pair, Chloe Dobson, 21, and her boyfriend, Peter Penman, 32, were in the middle of some al fresco coitus in Barrow, Cumbria, back in summer (2 June) when a shocked family - including three children - happened across them in broad daylight at around 8pm.

The family were walking on the towpath behind the town's Morrisons supermarket when they saw Dobson 'bouncing around' on Penman's lap on a bench.

They then lay on the ground and continued with their al fresco frolics, a Preston Crown Court heard.

Not exactly what you want to see on a wholesome summer evening walk with the kids, really.

The father decided to capture the indecent scenes to report to authorities.

He took out his mobile phone to snap photos of the couple, which he later sent over to the police.

The dad revealed it was obvious to him, his wife and their oldest child what was going on between the couple while the younger children did not understand.

Officers later arrived to find Dobson pulling up her trousers, with the court hearing that both Dobson and Penman were extremely drunk at the time.

In an interview with the police, Dobson said she did not really remember what had gone on but, the following day, she posted on social media that she 'had the wildest day and night!'.

The pair both pleaded guilty to outraging public decency.

When sentencing Dobson, Recorder Graham Lowe said: "This is a serious offence. This type of behaviour in a public place should not be tolerated."

Lowe went on to say: "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'.

It also declared that the 21-year-old does not have a particularly mature outlook on life.

Recorder Lowe also added: "Your thinking skills and ability to deal with things appear to be wanting."

Dobson, who hails from Sefton Road, Morecambe, Lancashire, was given a 12-month community order and was ordered to undertake 25 days of rehabilitation activity requirements.

She was also ordered to continue to work with The Well support centre to both address personal issues as well as to ensure she does not offend again.

‌Penman, who's from Ramsden Street in Barrow, will be sentenced at a later date.
