Pervert stuffed courgette down leggings before ‘parading’ in front of shoppers
A pervert who stuffed a courgette down a pair of leggings before "parading" about in front of disgusted shoppes has been jailed.
Sicko Geoffrey Chambers, 66, stood rubbing the phallic-shaped vegetable for more than an hour in Hereford town centre.
Police were called after an off-duty officer saw him leaning against a market while trying to make eye contact with his wife on December 12 last year.
Hereford Crown Court heard how other "distressed" members of the public, including children and parents, saw the prolific sex offender simulating a sex act on himself.
Prosecutor Cathlyn Orchard told how the police officer's wife said she could see a "large, long item" through the leggings which Chambers kept touching.
Chambers has a "long history of indecent exposures" and had only been released from prison two months earlier for two attempted child sex offences.
He kept trying to make eye contact with the woman and other females in the city centre.
One witness, who was shopping with her 14-year-old daughter, said she felt sick and immediately went home. He then started "parading himself".

When police arrived and arrested him an hour later he removed the courgette which was tied with a string around his waist.
Officers found more courgettes in the car of the perv, who had previously committed 31 indecent exposure offences.
It also emerged he had recently committed two similar acts in Swansea and Cardiff, but only received a warning from police in South Wales.

Chambers admitted one public order offence and one count of outraging public decency last Friday and was caged for eight months.
Judge Martin Jackson said most shoppers reacted with "disgust and repulsion" at what they saw.
He told Chambers his actions were "offensive, disturbing and alarming" and unacceptable in public view, especially where there were families with children of all ages.
Emily Heggadon, defending, said her client told police how performing the act would "help him out of a low mood".
She said Chambers, of Cwmbran, Gwent, apologised and said his actions were meant to be a "light-hearted" joke and not intended "to convey sexual connotations".
