IIN ‘My toi­let hell with bearded man in wed­ding dress!’


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE gent’s toi­lets in a sleepy vil­lage have been closed in­def­i­nitely af­ter they be­came a pop­u­lar meet­ing place for gay sex peo­ple.

Shocked parish coun­cil­lors took the de­ci­sion af­ter a lo­cal was propo­si­tioned by a bearded man in his late 50s or 60s, wear­ing a white wed­ding dress.

The con­ve­niences are be­ing ad­ver­tised on a seedy web­site, com­plete with di­rec­tions and the best times to visit.

New­ton Pop­ple­ford Parish Coun­cil in Devon has now closed the male fa­cil­i­ties un­til fur­ther no­tice.

The lo­cal res­i­dent who was propo­si­tioned by the man in the dress said he was hor­ri­fied by the in­ci­dent.

He said: “I in­tended to do some busi­ness in the vil­lage and I went in to use the gen­tle­men’s pub­lic con­ve­nience which ad­joins the car park.

“Imag­ine my shock and hor­ror when I en­tered the toi­let to find a bearded man, in his late 50s or early 60s, wear­ing a full white wed­ding dress.

“He in­vited me into the cu­bi­cle with him, and stated that the toi­lets in New­ton Pop­ple­ford are a well-known gay haunt, ad­ver­tised and pro­moted on a web­site.

“I find this ab­hor­rent and rep­re­hen­si­ble, since there is a school very close by, and chil­dren pass by there ev­ery day.

“The man wear­ing the white wed­ding dress did not seem at all con­cerned by my alarm at his pres­ence, what he was wear­ing or what he was sug­gest­ing we do.”

David Atkins, from the Parish Coun­cil, said the po­lice had been in­formed and that the de­ci­sion had been taken to im­me­di­ately close the toi­lets.

He said: “We’ve had is­sues be­fore, but not like this.”
