I think my favourite part of the newspaper report about a Pervert caught pleasuring himself in slurry for third time (From This is The West Country)…
A man found naked in a field amongst cow dung and mud had been sexually pleasuring himself, a court has heard.
It was the same farm he had returned to over a period of seven years.
When police officers arrived soon after, they found him covered in a large amount of slurry and mud, in a quagmire, surrounded by tissues.
This is the third time that he has appeared in court for this kind of behaviour. [...]
… is that the first comment on the article is from a reader objecting to the fact that the newspaper's web site filed this story under 'Devon'1 when the incident took place in Cornwall and the offender was from Cornwall. After all:
Readers unfamiliar with the geography of Britain may inappropriately be led to believe that this sort of thing could possibly be allowed to happen in Devon.
