The site near a transport cafe in West Yorkshire is being investigated by police after the owner of Big Baps complained her business is being plagued by them having sex
A dogging site close to a transport cafe in West Yorkshire is now being investigated by police following the business owners complaints about people having sex.
The owners of Big Baps spoke out last week revealing her business has been blighted by litter and sexual activity of doggers.
Sharon Wherrett, co-owner of the café off the M62 near Brighouse, says so many men visit the area for sex that it stops her customers from being able to pull in.
She told YorkhsireLive that she could see “two or three doggers” every morning as she opened up her cafe.
Following her complaint of “male doggers” having sex and the number of condoms and other “sex litter”, West Yorkshire Police have confirmed they are going to investigate the dogging hotspot.
A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: “It has been passed to the NPT (Neighbourhood Policing Team) to look into.”
Sharon, who co-owns the cafe with her sister Amanda Bissett, says the situation has gotten so bad that she now warns people who look to go walking in the area.
Speaking previously, Sharon said: “My daughter’s 21 and she came over once and said ‘mum I’ve just seen a dogger’ and I said to her ‘it could have been a fisherman’ and she said ‘mum he had his penis in his hand’, they just walk around naked.”
YorkshireLive spoke to two men who seemed to engage in activities at the layby and claim the site is a popular gay haunt.
One man, who was waiting in his car near Big Baps, called the owners “selfish” and the use of the layby was not just for her customers.
He also dismissed that the area was for “dogging” and insisted it is “men meeting men for sex”.
