Video footage of a couple having sex in a pizza delivery shop as staff worked on the other side of the counter has been shown to a court.

The CCTV footage of Daniella Hirst and Craig Smith was shown at Scarborough Magistrates Court, where the pair faced charges of outraging public decency.

Hirst, 29, pleaded guilty to the offence on Thursday and Smith, 31, was found guilty in his absence after a trial lasting barely 30 minutes.

The evidence in the trial consisted almost exclusively of the 18-minute long footage which showed the pair entering Domino's Pizza in Castle Road, in the resort.

It showed them ordering food and messing around with a yellow cleaning cone, before Hirst performs oral sex on Smith.

After this, the couple have sex leaning on the counter close to the till.

Staff can be seen working in the kitchen as the couple continue their antics and delivery staff come and go during the footage.

Hirst, of Gypsey Road, Bridlington, sat at the back of the court with her hands over her eyes as the more explicit parts of the footage was shown.

Smith, of Field Road, Bridlington, was not in court. The magistrates were told he was in prison relating to other matters.
