A COUPLE have been spared jail after having drunken sex in an alleyway in view of passers-by.
Kai Smart, 25, and 33-year-old Emma James said they thought they were out of sight as they romped for seven minutes against the wall of a budget hotel.

But the receptionist saw them when she popped outside for a cigarette — and they were also spotted by guests with a five-year-old boy returning after a night out.
Prosecutor Ann Smout said: “It was clear they were having intercourse by their stance and movement.
“The receptionist saw a man walk past the alleyway and get his phone out — she does not know if he was calling police or filming.
“A family with a five-year-old boy passed. The boy stopped by the alleyway and she believes he saw the couple.”
