UK: Filthy Ralph Bishop, 53, was caught with his trousers around his ankles in a field in Saxmundham, Suffolk, as he “interfered” with a tractor.
After being arrested for public indecency, he later admitted to having a sordid fetish for the farming machines – particularly green ones.
He claimed to have had intimate sex sessions with as many as 450 tractors – including John Deere’s and Massey Ferguson’s.
Police officers later raided his home and discovered a stash of more than 5,000 indecent images of tractors on his laptop.
Bishop, twice divorced, was released without charge on condition of receiving psychological help.
He was also forced to sign the sex offenders’ register and banned from entering the countryside.
A Suffolk Police spokesman said: “He is now not allowed to go within one mile of a farm.
“So he has to live and remain in the middle of Ipswich to comply with that.
“However, we are watching him because we are worried about the safety of several street-cleaning machines.”
Another policeman told the Suffolk Gazette: “He’ll also need to keep away from the town’s gardens – if he takes a fancy to a lawn mower he might find he loses more than just his liberty.”
