Gay men meet at Tudeley Woods nature reserve

23 July 2010

RSPB logoRSPB staff are keeping an eagle eye out after gay men were spotted using a nature reserve for the wrong kind of wild life.

Homosexuals have been using Tudeley Woods near Tonbridge as a meeting point.

Now extra staff have been taken on to ensure the family-friendly visitor attraction remains just that.

Visitors will now be greeted when they arrive, to "ensure that the car park is used appropriately".

A spokesman for the RSPB said: "There are wonderful walks to be had and wildlife to be seen at Tudeley Woods, and we are eager that our visitors get to enjoy these things without having to worry about encountering this sort of behaviour.

"We are just starting to trial a meet and greet scheme at the car park. On a regular basis, we intend that visitors will be met by RSPB staff and volunteers in the car park, helping them get the most from their visit.

"There are a range of other options we are exploring too, and we are grateful for the help of the local police, who we work closely with."
