A man with a fetish for children's playground equipment has been banned from going anywhere which has a slide.

It's his second slide-related offence.

At Coventry Magistrates Court he admitted outraging public decency by behaving in an indecent manner and received a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order.

The order bans him from attending any location, including parks, leisure centres, swimming baths, lidos or recreation grounds were there is a slide.

Johnson also received a three-year community order, which includes having sex offender treatment for 18 months, and a rehabilitation activity

He was fined £55 and had to pay a £60 victim surcharge, £85 costs and a £180 criminal courts charge.

Police were called to Stoke Green Park at 10.45pm on Wednesday, August 18, after four people spotted what he was doing.

The court heard Johnson had a previous conviction for a similar offence.

The play area was opened in February 2012 after residents in the area raised thousands of pounds.
