POLICE launched a crackdown on strangers using a secluded copse near Kirtlington for outdoor sex in January 2012.

The area north of Kidlington had apparently become a ‘dogging spot’ with residents revealing there was often ‘evidence of sexual activity’ left behind.

Officers decided to take action after a female jogger had a rude awakening when she came across a naked man running out of the copse in Port Way two months earlier.

The man was arrested but released without charge and Kidlington officers began patrolling the area to deter future sexual activities.

·      Did you suspect this spot was used for dogging at the time? Has the problem stopped since?

Sergeant Colin Travi, of Kidlington police, said: “We have had a few complaints. My officers have made follow-up visits and we have done some patrols out there.

“Those partaking in the activity have been warned not to frequent the area for sexual purposes.”

He added: “If they want to practice some illicit sexual act, they should do so in the privacy of their own home and not in a public place where some people may be offended.”

·      Are there any other spots in Oxfordshire that you suspect police should investigate?

The officer said that he did not know how long the area had been used as a dogging site, however patrols had found condoms and messages offering sex.

A 60-year-old Kirtlington resident, who did not want to be named, told the Oxford Mail at the time: “We have got lots of children and people walking around here and that is not the sort of thing you want to see.”
