A drunk man has been caught trying to have sex with a postbox in the middle of a shopping arcade.

Paul Bennett, 45, was spotted walking towards the postbox with his trousers down at Scholes Precinct in Wigan.

He then rubbed himself against the postbox while holding his hands in the air and shouting “wow”.

After completing the act he pulled his trousers up and started swinging on a lamppost.

An eye-witness called police and he was arrested.

Bennett, of Holborn Avenue, Wigan, pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent exposure and using threatening and abusive words with abusive behaviour at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates Court.
