Police raid public toilets on the Mound to break up 12-man orgy

The incident occurred in broad daylight


On Wednesday afternoon the police raided the public toilets at the bottom of the Mound after a man reported that he had walked in on a group of up to 12 men performing sex acts on each other.

The witness, a 32 year old man from Duddingston was taking his six- year old nephew to get a Hibs shirt (classic) when he walked in on the group of men, some of whom had their faces "crouched down at another's groin" or masturbating.
