Couple caught having s.e.x in a car in Milan are arrested for breaching coronavirus lockdown
A couple caught having sex in a car were arrested for breaching coronavirus quarantine rules in Italy.
The 23-year-old Egyptian man and 40-year-old Tunisian woman were caught in the act by a police officer on the outskirts of Milan.
Quite apart from decency laws, the pair chose a particularly bad time for their roadside fling, with authorities on alert for breaches of the virus lockdown.
The pair were accused of ignoring a quarantine rule which bans two people from being in the front or back of a vehicle together, according to news agency ANSA.
It is not clear whether the couple will face further action, but authorities have been keeping a wary eye on all road vehicles in order to enforce a ban on travel.
Italians are only allowed outside to buy food, give or receive medical care, or travel to work if absolutely necessary.
Despite the ample opportunities for indoor entertainment, the couple were caught in the act on a road in Mecenate near Milan which has been heavily hit by the outbreak.
Elsewhere, a family who were relaxing on a lawn were ordered to move by police in San Donato Milanese near Milan today.
The region of Lombardy which includes Milan has had the largest number of cases in Italy and hospitals in the northern province are struggling to cope.
