Better Than Chasing Down People With Their Pants Down

UK town axes 6,00 trees to prevent sex romp

Officials say the forest that runs for kilometres along the busy A666 was cleared as some of the trees, planted after the Second World War, were in danger of falling.

Police and councillors have, however, confirmed another reason was to discourage strangers from the known "dogging" area.

Dogging is a term for people having sex with strangers in public places, or watching others have sex, often in woods or country lay-bys.

The felling of 6,000 trees to try to stop couples having sex there has prompted an angry backlash.

"It's awful that a public green space, an asset to the local community, has been destroyed mindlessly. If the law was enforced properly then there would be no need to chop down these trees," Matthew Elliott, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, was quoted as saying
