Two UK police officers have been caught kissing each other for more than 20 minutes in a patrol car while on duty at a Tesco supermarket carpark in Blackburn, Lancashire.
A witness said they saw the officers kissing in the vehicle for what appeared to be close to 20 minutes before the female officer got out and walked round to the driverâs side to continue smooching through the window.
One man who saw them was so stunned that he began filming the interaction.
He said of the incident in a Tesco car park off Carl Fogarty Way: âI was sat with my friend in the car park, Iâd gone to fix my car.
âAfter we were done we were just parked in the supermarket car park having a little break.
âMy friend noticed the police officer in his mirror and saw that a woman had got into his car. It just didnât feel right.â
He said the pair were initially in their own cars â 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.
The witness went on: âInitially they were in their own cars. They pulled up next to each other and were talking from car to car. She then got out and got into his car.
âThey were kissing in the car â their faces were colliding. They were sat in the car for about 20 minutes.
âThis is an on-duty police officer sitting in a car for 20 minutes doing b***** all.
âIt annoyed me. People were walking past and taking a double look into the vehicle and thinking âIs that really happening?â They were laughing and joking and kissing. I donât think they should be doing it on police time, even if he was on his lunch break it looks bad.â
And he added: âThey were there for a long time â all in all about an hour if not longer. Thatâs what made me think it couldnât be a lunch break.
âItâs a big town, there will be a lot going on, enough for them to do. People are getting burgled and they donât bother going out to them.â
A spokesman for Lancashire Police described it as an âisolated incident.â
A spokesman said: âLancashire Constabulary appreciates the impact social media videos can have on public confidence.
âThis was an isolated incident involving one off duty and one on duty police officer.
âThe officers have since been spoken to and apologised for their conduct and understand how this may have been interpreted, the matter is now closed.â
