Fears over adverts for public sex

A HEADTEACHER and youth groups have voiced concerns that sites around a Suffolk village are being advertised for people wanting to take part in public sex acts.

A HEADTEACHER and youth groups have voiced concerns that sites around a Suffolk village are being advertised for people wanting to take part in public sex acts.

Three car parks near Nacton village, just outside Ipswich, and a second site near the Hallowtree Scout Camp, by the old Ipswich Airport, are advertised on adult websites.

The news has shocked the scouting community, residents in Nacton and Andrew Auster, headteacher of the exclusive Orwell Park School in Nacton.

One of the websites features a review of the three car parks at a picnic area in the village from an evening in June this year.

However, Suffolk police said yesterday as long as no money changed hands and no children were involved, the sexual acts – understood to be performed in cars – were not illegal.

A police spokeswoman said there was no record of any complaints about activities at the car parks.

Andrew Auster, headteacher at the exclusive Orwell Park School, which has around 300 boarders aged three to 13, was concerned at the news.

He said: "To have any behaviour of this kind so close to us is a matter of great concern. If it is behind closed doors, that is one thing, but to do it in public places is very disturbing."

He stressed that his pupils were accompanied on all excursions.

John Brown, warden at the Hallowtree Scout Camp, where around 300 Girl Guides have been enjoying a holiday this week, said: "There are cars parked up there at all times of the night.

"It's pretty obvious what's going on without looking more closely. I don't hang around to find out. I have seen cars with their interior lights on.

"We have all sorts of young people here – guides, scouts, church groups. They are always with leaders when they go out but still. Surely there is something the police can do about it?"
