Council IT provider's staff exposed back-room operations

Taxi drivers, PCSOs shocked by windowsill sex romp

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Oldham council’s “preferred service provider” gave the whole community an eyeful when two members of staff serviced one another, unaware they were being watched by a crowd of 20 people.

Two staff at the offices of the Unity Partnership in Oldham let themselves get carried away on Friday morning, the Oldham Chronicle reports.

Thinking they were protected from view by a “slightly frosted window” the couple reportedly stripped one another’s clothes off, before engaging in a 20 minute sex romp, precariously perched on a window sill.

The daredevil exhibitionists were apparently oblivious to a swelling crowd below on the town’s Cheapside thoroughfare. The crowd included taxi drivers and, luckily, two Police Community Support Officers.

The PCSOs were roused to intervene, and stormed the office building to inform the pair that they had attracted the crowd.

The sight of the PCSOs eventually became too much for the pair, and according to one witness. “I don’t know whether they were given the message. But not too long after they stopped.”

According to its website, the Oldham Unity Partnership is “the partner of choice for Oldham Council, providing a range of multi-disciplinary professional services aimed at regenerating the borough and transforming customer services”. These range from highways to ICT.

The partnership’s MD told the Oldham Chronicle that the pair had been suspended pending an investigation.

The partnership recently helped Oldham residents celebrate a different kind of riding during National Bike Week. ®
