A man has been fined after breaching coronavirus lockdown restrictions to watch doggers have sex.

Daniel Lewis, 24, was caught in a car park with two other men observing another pair going at it in their vehicle.

The incident occurred on May 17, meaning Lewis was found to be in breach of pandemic measures that prohibited gatherings of more than two people at the time.

Lewis, from Banbury, Oxfordshire, was fined £300 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34 and court costs of £90, after being convicted at Oxford Magistrates’ Court.

Lewis was found in Stoke Wood car park, near Bicester, an ancient woodland that is ‘extremely well used and enjoyed by local people’, according to the Woodland Trust website.

With lockdown restrictions preventing people from meeting up in homes, there has reportedly been an 85% increase in people searching for outdoor hookup spots over the last year.

According to Datingroo: ‘Dogging is when people meet up in cars, be it in a car park or elsewhere and watch each other have sex.

‘Some may join in, others may just be lurkers, whatever gets you going.’
