Man who had sex on bollard to get revenge on pensioner over parking row must pay £250

NewsMan who had sex on bollard to get revenge on pensioner over parking row must pay £250

A man who had sex on a bollard to get revenge on his neighbour has been told he must pay £250 compensation for the distress caused. Lee McConnell, 28, fell out with pensioner Wendie Bryant, 68, after she installed a metal post outsider her home in Blandford, Dorset, to stop McConnell from parking his campervan in her space.

However, the installation of the post led McConnell to take extraordinary and unusual action in October 2022.

McConnell decided to have sex with his wife, Danielle on the bollard Mrs Bryant had installed. CCTV footage shows McConnell approaching the bollard wearing nothing but flip-flops.

Footage allegedly shows McConnell and his wife having sex on the downpipe outside their home before taking a short breaking and resuming over the two-foot-tall bollard.

The act lasted for just three minutes before the pair returned to their home.

Reports say they were seen and heard by shocked residents living in their quiet cul-de-sac. However, Mrs Bryant was oblivious to the incident and only found out about it when she was told by a neighbour the next day.

Mrs Bryant saw the full extent of their display when she looked through her CCTV footage. She was so shocked by what she saw that she had to be given medicine by local doctors to treat her anxiety.

Mrs Bryant called the police who arrested McConnell for indecent exposure.

Weymouth Magistrates Court heard how the McConnells were so ashamed of what they had done that they decided to put their house up for sale and move to a different area.

The court heard how problems between the McConnells and Mrs Bryant began when McConnell started to park his VW Transporter campervan in Mrs Bryant’s designated parking space.

Mrs Bryant would often park her car on the road and leave her space empty as parking in that space made it difficult for another neighbour to leave.

Prosecuting, Siobhan Oxley said that the incident had caused Mrs Bryant “considerable distress and she was prescribed medication to deal with the anxiety”.

Mitigating, Simon Lacey said the act was a “one-off offence and the defendant has not spoken to Mrs Bryant since”.

Following the judgement, McConnell, who has one previous conviction for a driving offence, was given an 18-month community order and ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work.

He has also been told to pay £250 compensation to Mrs Bryant including £85 costs and a £114 victim surcharge.

Magistrate chair Frederick Fear said: “This offence is serious enough for us to make a community order.”

Mrs Bryant said she didn’t know “how the hell” the situation had got to where it did.
