'PROFESSIONAL' doggers have invaded an idyllic Cotwolds village for saucy escapades – leaving locals furious.
Barrow Wake, a beauty spot nestled in the Cotswold Hills has been overrun with couples having sex in their cars.
Villagers have said that since the pandemic they've seen a staggering rise in doggers. The increase could be down to hotels being closed and a ban on inside household mixing.
The Daily Mail reported that dozens of steamy cars park up at Barrow Wake every night.
One local said a converted horsebox full of naked people parked up in the picturesque spot.
"This village is very, very respectable. So the villagers are angry that this goes on so close to them. [The doggers] do not seem intimidated or embarrassed," said one pensioner from nearby Birdlip.
MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT
"But I’ve seen television programmes about these people and it’s to do with others watching. They enjoy an audience!"
Dogging, which became popular in the 2000s, is where strangers and couples meet in cars for sex.
Sometimes people are invited to just watch as other couples engage in a roadside romp.
There's usually a code of flashing beams or hazard lights to let other randy motorists know they are up for a bit of back seat fumbling.
While many don't see an issue with consenting adults having a roll-around in their own vehicles, some villagers have complained.
One claimed that many of the doggers were "professionals" who were there "morning, noon and night".
In July last year, Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust suggested the best solution to dealing with the issue would be for roads to be blocked off at night.
A spokesperson for Gloucestershire Constabulary said: "We are fully aware of this long-standing issue at Barrow Wake and continue to regularly patrol the area.
"[We continue] to work with partner agencies to develop a strategy on the broad issue of public sex areas, including installing signs warning against anti-social behaviour and there is a plan in place to identify the root causes of the problem and to find ways of tackling them."
