    There is a time and a place for everything and in a public place, whatever they were doing was probably seen as inappropriate , hence the photo of them. I suspect the people in the carriage seen behind in the picture or the cyclist may have made a complaint. I suppose its one step away from seeing doggers in Greenham, which most would also find offensive. As to making news, its a way to find out who they are to rap them on the knuckles, I guess.

      We are covering the police appeal for information, not the fact that the incident itself took place so our judgement was that it is news.

    I really don't see the problem. Train looks practically empty, who doesn't crack one off when there's only you and a few others on the carriage?

      I've seen a few on the newbury - reading line having some "personal time" in the mornings and evenings. Not a big deal for me, I couldn't care less, dunno why this instance is news worthy.
