A 26-year-old man has been arrested for trying to have sex with a pile of leaves.

The man, who had reportedly taken cannabis and cocaine, was spotted “thrusting” at a pile of leaves with his trousers round his ankles in a pub’s car park. He was soon approached by staff who shouted at him to clear the area.

Footage captured the English man observing the missionary position on the leaves before scuttling away into nearby bushes when confronted.

The man faced court where he was jailed for eight weeks, and admitted to having “no recollection of the behaviour described”.
