London, Nov 11 : A British couple has been arrested for allegedly having sex on a crowded Virgin train.
The randy pair was "going at it like an express engine", it has been claimed.
It has been said that a 41-year-old woman allegedly performed a sex act on businessman Gregory Sim, 49 on a daytime Virgin service from Liverpool to London Euston, while co-travellers buried their heads behind their newspapers.
"She supposedly performed a sex act on him right there in the carriage," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
The source added: "Neither of them were drunk and this was early afternoon. Being typically British, the other passengers said nothing and hid behind their papers.
"But a guard was looking at a CCTV monitor and apparently saw them going at it like an express engine. He got straight on to British Transport Police and there was a nice little reception party waiting for them at Euston." A British Transport Police spokesman said: "We can confirm that at 2.45pm on Wednesday, October 22 we arrested a man and a woman for allegedly engaging in sexual activity.
"The man, Gregory Sim, from Richmond, Surrey, has been charged with unacceptable behaviour on a train and is due to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates on November 17."
The woman, an Essex resident, was later bailed out with pending inquiries.
However, it is still unknown if the couple were in a relationship.
On the other hand Sim, of Richmond, Surrey, confirmed of his arrest over the incident, but claimed the case had been dropped. He refused to elaborate further on the issue.
