Tory caught in the act

By James White, August 7, 2008

A Conservative councillor on Harrow Council has been fined for taking part in a sexual act in a public toilet.

On Wednesday Robert Benson admitted the offence, which took place in a Harrow Council public convenience, and was fined £205 and ordered to pay costs.

Mr Benson, 41, who is due to marry in Stanmore Synagogue next month, was arrested after police community support officers discovered two men in a cubicle.

Wimbledon Magistrates' Court heard how Mr Benson was caught with a 56-year-old Essex man in June.
Police later cautioned the second man.
