A COUPLE who played to the crowd while having oral sex in and outside Barnsley Interchange have been jailed for 10 weeks.

Jacqueline Holden, 37, and Sam Rowan, 22, began in Midland Street and were egged on by a crowd of between 30 and 40 teenagers inside the interchange, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Chantel Lowery-Green, prosecuting, said the couple went inside the building and were filmed by teenagers with mobile phones.

"Mr Rowan was looking around and wanted the public to know what was going on. The couple played to the audience. Ms Holden then lay on the floor and Mr Rowan had oral sex with her."

Holden denied this after her arrest.

District Judge John Foster said: "You engaged in open sexual contact outside and inside the interchange in front of a crowd you were encouraging.

"The interchange is probably the busiest place in the town and the description of your behaviour has been absolutely disgusting. This demands a deterrent."

Holden, of Oxford Street, Barnsley, and Rowan, of Bridge Street, Barnsley, admitted outraging public decency.
