A commuter accused of indecency on a train has walked free after telling a court he was strumming an imaginary banjo.

Before Melvyn Webb was acquitted, the judge in his trial had informed the jury that men do sometimes innocently ‘fiddle with themselves in public’.

The case arose after a woman complained of seeing a newspaper moving on his lap as he breathed heavily.

P.S. Although it is in the Daily Mail, it seems to be true.

dam ...   well  i'm  goin  straight to  prison ..  i was  just polishing  my  nut  on  my pluck  stck  :-/

Oh my...strumming his banjo..(wink/wink), and adjusting his underpants...lol...horrifiying...sounds innocent enough to me...nice one John...

Truth is stranger than fiction for sure!!! I might just take the bus tomorrow with my imaginary CBG...

What would happen if you brought along your imaginary suitcase drum, stomp box and harmonica as well. I think they'd throw away the key.

Roadkill John, if you are up for an imaginary collaboration, I am just pretty darn good on imaginary mouth harp.

You play very damn good on the real one. Now where do I imagine I put that imaginary suitcase?

He was just tuning his organ;-0

There's no doubt.....the woman saw what she saw.


But I can't be sure what was actually going on.

She played imaginary flute and he was out of tune. It is a major offence!

Lucky it was an imaginary banjo, otherwise he'd have got life...  (-;

   Least he wasn't playing slide on an imaginary a diddley-bow...

Or an upright bass.
