Weird couple caught having sex in church cemetery
A brazen couple were caught having sex on a gravestone at a cemetery located on church ground.
They were filmed having sex on the gravestone in broad daylight in a churchyard frequented by children. They also bragged that they did it for 45 minutes.
Dog walker Scott Elwood spotted the when he was passing through the Holy Trinity Parish Church in Shaw, Greater Manchester on Wednesday and was so outraged that he decided to film the explicit scenes.
Disgusted that the pair didn’t stop their exploits despite seeing him, the 20-year-old heckled them, calling them names. He then shouts: “On a … grave? That’s … wrong, mate.”
Scott passed the footage, which was filmed on 29th May at around 7.30pm, to police but was was appalled when the offending man contacted him to brag about his irreverence.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, told Scott to ‘get a life’ and stop being a pervert by watching those having sex.
He went on to encourage Scott to do the same, telling him to “have some fun in his life and take a risk now and again”, claiming he too would “feel the buzz of being caught”.
Manual labourer Scott branded the pair “disrespectful” for having sex on a gravestone as well as in the churchyard that is frequented by young children.
Scott described the incident as “a really shocking thing to see.”
“But obviously, I didn’t want to stay there a long time as I was in full view of them. I was very close to them.
“But I went back past a second time to record them. The guy wasn’t bothered at all that I was filming him. He was just looking at me with this look that said ‘buzz off.’
“He was far too involved in what he was up to to bother with me.”
The man allegedly involved in the incident later contacted Scott and began to brag about the incident.
Scott said: “He bragged to me that he was doing it for 45 minutes — I just think he is an idiot, to be honest.
“It sounds like he wanted to get caught, especially considering where he did it and then said in the comments that it was a thrill.
“It’s awful to do that in broad daylight. That’s why I had to record it. I didn’t want to be the only eyes that saw it.
“They were doing right on top of the first grave next to the alleyway, right in front of all the houses.
“Every house looks right onto the graveyard, which is awful.”
Scott reported the incident to the police after realising that the churchyard is often visited by playing children.
A lot of children play on the church grounds playing hide and seek, manhunt and so on. Luckily, there was no one there on the day, but if there had been it would be awful,” he said.
“I phoned the police and said there was a couple having sex on a grave and they said they would send a unit down but I didn’t see anyone come.
“It’s very disrespectful to do it on someone’s grave. It’s awful.”
Scott said he would have reacted “a lot differently” if the couple had been having sex on a grave of someone he knew.
“I would have been very angry. I couldn’t imagine what the family of whoever in the grave would think.”
The man in the video admitted that he was having sex in the graveyard for 45 minutes but refused to comment further.
The woman involved in the footage said: “One person took a video. Just one person saw it.”
Greater Manchester Police responded, “Shortly before 7.30pm on Tuesday 29 May 2018, police were called to reports of an indecent exposure at a graveyard on Church Road in Shaw.
“Enquiries into the full circumstances around this incident are ongoing.”
