A woman who saw a driver pleasuring himself in a millionaire's row has been awarded £100 in compensation.
The young woman in her 20s was taking her dog for a walk when she spotted Rhys Jones at the wheel of his parked car by the entrance to a farmer's field in the village of Mere, near Knutsford, Cheshire.
During the incident Jones, 26, was seen moving his hand "quickly up and down" and was said to have shown no signs of embarrassment, even when the woman knocked on his window and told him to stop.
He eventually drove off when she walked away in disgust. The woman said she was "shocked and angry" following the encounter.
In a police statement she said: "This is something I have never experienced before and I was deeply shocked. I still cannot forget his face as he seemed unreal and like he wasn't human.
"I didn't feel safe waking outside my home for some time and was too scared to go out in case he would return.
"If it wasn't for his reaction I may not have reported him but he behaved in a way which showed total disregard for my wellbeing. He posed a threat to other people."

At Manchester Magistrates' Court, Jones, of Bryn y Baal near Mold, North Wales was ordered to pay the woman damages after being convicted of outraging public decency on June 21, 2018.
Prosecutor Lynne Sayers said: "When she got closer she saw the defendant inside the car. She could see him constantly looking at her, looking away and then looking at her again.
"She then thought he was waiting for her to get nearer so he could ask for directions. But as she got within 10ft of the vehicle she noticed his hand moving quickly up and down his groin.
"She immediately knew what he was doing and she was shocked and angry. She knocked on his window and told him to stop but he was unfazed.

"She says he didn't flinch or show any embarrassment or guilt. He covered up with a hoodie at one point but didn't stop even when she pleaded with him to do so.
"She says he seemed devoid of any emotion and didn't seem concerned about her wellbeing."
Jones had no previous convictions.
His lawyer Hannah Kelly said: "This was totally out of character for him. He is a hardworking young man who has mental health issues and has recently been made redundant.
"It is likely he was very unwell at the time of this incident."
Jones was also ordered to complete a nine month community order with 15 rehabilitation requirement days.
He was fined a further £200 and ordered to pay £500 costs.
