Three people who performed sex acts in front of horrified punters have been banned for life for the incident outside a Wetherspoons pub.

The trio were caught in the act at the James Watt pub in Greenock, Scotland, and were later seen on CCTV as police launched an investigation.

Charley Malone, 28, James Hainey, 33, and Sophie Fitzgerald, 25, were all reported to management, who ordered them to leave.

Fitzgerald performed or mimicked a sex act on Malone before Hainey and Fitzgerald removed their lower clothing.

The antics continued as Fitzgerald straddled Hainey’s lap while facing away from him in July.

Wetherspoons said the trio were banned for life as police pressed charges



They were then escorted from the premises by the duty manager before Malone stood at the door and shouted abuse at staff.

Wetherspoons have now confirmed that all three have been banned from their premises for life.

A source said: “It was outrageous to see something like that in a pub beer garden.

“They weren’t caring who saw what they were up to and seemed oblivious to how wrong it was to be cavorting around like that in public.

“It’s no wonder they were booted out and banned for life.”

A police investigation was later launched which led to the three being charged with public indecency after the entire incident was captured on the pub’s CCTV system.

The shame-faced trio appeared at Greenock Sheriff Court earlier this month and admitted the offences.

Fitzgerald, of Greenock, was put under supervision for three years and was tagged for five months.

Malone was ordered to complete 270 hours of unpaid work and placed under supervision for three years by Sheriff Joseph Hughes. He was also tagged for the next five months.

Hainey was told he must perform 180 hours of unpaid work and be under supervision for two years as well as being tagged for three months.

The court heard Hainey and Malone now live together in Ayrshire.

Social media users voiced their outrage at the group’s sordid behaviour.

One said: “Some people lack even the basic morals. Young children and decent human beings frequent that public house.

“This is disgusting behaviour that needs dealt with severely.”

Another added: “Hang your head in shame.”

A spokeswoman for Wetherspoon said: “We can confirm that the three individuals are barred for life.”
