Coventry Editorial 21st Sep, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A COVENTRY man with a fetish for playground equipment, has been banned from anywhere that has a slide.

Car park attendant, Christopher Johnson pleaded guilty to outraging public decency at Coventry Magistrates Court after being caught simulating a sexual act with a slide at Stoke Green Park, in the Lower Stoke area of the city.

Officers were called to the park just before 11pm on Wednesday, August 18, after Johnson was spotted by passers-by.

The 46-year-old of St Osburg’s Road, Stoke, was handed a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order which bans him from going anywhere – including parks, lidos, recreation grounds, swimming pools or leisure centres – where there is a slide.

He also received a three-year community order, which requires him to have sex offender treatment for 18 months and take part in rehabilitation activities.
