]Imaginary banjo player cleared of public indecency

A commuter accused of performing an indecent act while on a train has been cleared after explaining he was strumming an imaginary banjo.

Melvyn Webb, 54, was arrested following a complaint from a woman passenger sitting next to him on a 7.08am Basingstoke to Reading train last August.

Mr Webb, of Basingstoke, denied a charge of outraging public decency and told a jury at Reading Crown Court he was miming playing a banjo and tapping his fingers on his knees.

He also said he had been adjusting his underwear and blamed his heavy breathing on a respiratory tract infection he was suffering at the time.

The jury of eight women and four men cleared Mr Webb by a majority verdict on Monday

I remember once happening on a group of George Formby impersonators on the local tv news and being momentarily stunned by what I thought I was seeing.
