Queen`s friend calls police after estate used for outdoor sex

London: A friend of Britain`s Queen Elizabeth II has called in the police after his estate was overrun by people seeking outdoor sex, a media report said Saturday.

Sir Beville Stanier, a friend of the Queen and nephew of late Sir John Miller who was in charge of the Royal household, claims he has been plagued by homosexual men who use his land for sex, Daily Mail reported.

Sir Beville, who now runs his late uncle`s 2,000 Shotover Estate, near Oxford, called in the police and local authorities in a bid to deter them.

He has called for more police officers to patrol a layby on the A40 near Forest Hill which is used by the exhibitionists to access his estate.

A chain-link fence which had been broken by the people performing public sex acts in the area was fixed by Oxfordshire County Council but they refused to erect large fences.

Sir Beville forked out thousands of pounds in clearing undergrowth to make it harder for the miscreants to conceal themselves.

PC Paul Gregory, of Thames Valley police, said patrols of the area would be stepped up.

He said: "We will continue to make sure we have a visible police presence at the site.

"The layby has been on the police`s patrol plans for years and we`ve been working with the council and Terrence Higgins Trust to try and educate people who meet at the location and encourage them to take their activities elsewhere."

Sir John Miller was the Queen`s crown equerry between 1967 and 1987. He died in May 2006 aged 87.
