Lidl shoppers in Wales were shocked when they spotted two men having sex in the car park's bushes. Anthony Rees, 56, and Quentin Jones were caught romping in the foliage by police who had received reports of exposure.

Officers had been called to the the supermarket, in Cowbridge Road West, in Cardiff, on August 1 last year. A sentencing hearing at Cardiff Crown Court on Wednesday (April 24) heard the police were directed to the bushes.

As they pulled up they could see a pair of legs in the air, with white trainers visible, and movement in the bushes. Sexual noises, including grunting and moaning, were also audible, reports WalesOnline.

As police approached the bushes they could see Rees on top of Mr Jones engaging in sexual intercourse. Both men were arrested and taken to custody. The defendant said he couldn't recall what had happened due to taking Valium.

Rees, of North Luton Place, Adamsdown, pleaded guilty to outraging public decency. He has 13 previous convictions relating to violence and drug offences.

The defendant, who was unrepresented, missed a court hearing in relation to the offence and was remanded in custody in February. Mr Jones was dealt with at a separate hearing.

Judge Christopher Vosper KC sentenced Rees to 12 weeks imprisonment. Due to the time he has spent in custody he will be released imminently.
