Dog walkers have complained to the police they feel intimidated by men meeting for sex in Strathclyde Park.
Over the summer the car park behind M&D’s has become a hive of activity for “Cruisers”, who gather to engage in sexual activity in nearby woodland.
A woman who regularly walks her dog in the park said: “I’ve seen them all summer and at times the numbers have been so high it has been a little intimidating. I have to question if being so near a theme park where clearly there are going to be children is really the best place to meet.
“They are quite brazen and unless there is a police patrol about don’t seem bothered when you see them. We can only hope a child doesn’t stumble upon their activities at some point.
“It is all types of men, from those dressed in shorts and T-shirts to businessmen in Mercedes and BMWs, and while I don’t care what people get up to maybe they could do it somewhere a little less public, perhaps behind closed doors which surely would be more comfortable than the bushes.
“I have complained to the police and I know I’m not the only one, but I guess unless police actually catch them in the act there isn’t a lot they can do about people sitting in a car park.”
The police confirmed this is a periodic problem and has been allocated to the community policing team to investigate.
