Two UK police officers were recently caught kissing furiously in a patrol car for 20 minutes at a Tesco supermarket in Lancashire.
One witness said they saw the officers kissing for 20 minutes in Blackburn car park, Lancashire. The witness also said the female officer later got out of the car and walked round to the driver’s side to continue the smooching through the window.
One man who saw them was so stunned that he began filming the interaction.
He said the incident happened in a Tesco car park off Carl Fogarty Way: ‘I was sat with my friend in the car park, I’d gone to fix my car.
After we were done we were just parked in the supermarket car park having a little break.
‘My friend noticed the police officer in his mirror and saw that a woman had got into his car. It just didn’t feel right.’
He said the pair were initially in their own cars – the male officer in a liveried police car and the woman in an unmarked car on Good Friday.
While he was on-duty it appears she was not working at the time of the incident, although is an officer with the Lancashire force.
‘This is an on-duty police officer sitting in a car for 20 minutes doing b***** all.
‘It annoyed me. People were walking past and taking a double look into the vehicle and thinking ”Is that really happening?” They were laughing and joking and kissing. I don’t think they should be doing it on police time, even if he was on his lunch break it looks bad.’
A spokesman for Lancashire Police described it as an ‘isolated incident.’
The spokesman said: ‘Lancashire Constabulary appreciates the impact social media videos can have on public confidence.
‘The officers have since been spoken to and apologised for their conduct and understand how this may have been interpreted, the matter is now closed.’
