THREE men who exposed themselves and simulated sex acts in front of other train passengers have escaped jail.
But Ian Iveson, 38, Gary Wilson, 42, and Shane Woods, 30, were told they should be ashamed of themselves.
Furness Magistrates’ Court heard that the trio had been drinking in a large group in Lancaster to celebrate Iveson’s birthday on January 15.
At around 9.20pm they boarded the train from Manchester to Barrow at Lancaster, and sat at a table behind two girls, aged 14 and 13, and one of the girl’s mothers.
Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, told the court that after boarding, Iveson proceeded to open his shirt and Woods and Wilson licked his chest.
Iveson then stood on a chair and was asked by Woods and Wilson to expose himself before the pair lowered their heads to his groin.
The whole incident was captured on CCTV.
