Couple's Valentine's Day hotel sex ended with police called and a £1,000 bill

A couple whose noisy Valentine's Day sex disturbed other hotel guests have ended up with a £1,000 bill.
Jamie Boultbee and his partner Kaylie Hursthouse had booked into the Moorlands Izaak Walton Hotel on 14 February, but their 'over-exuberant intimacy' led management to call the police.
Officers responding to a call from staff about a 'group being rowdy' were let into the hotel by a guest who had been woken up by the noise, and after getting no reply to knocking on the room door were given a key to let themselves in.
Inside the room they found found Hursthouse drunk and slurring her words, along with damage done to the bathroom door.
The couple pleaded guilty to criminal damage at North Staffordshire Justice Centre and were made to hand over £500 each, with some of that money going to other guests whose nights were ruined by the noise.
Prosecutor Karen Wright said police received a call from the hotel, close to Dovedale, just after midnight on 15 February and were told by the couple that the reason for the noise was them having rough sex.
Wright said: "Night staff had gone up to the troublesome room to speak to people in there. The police were escorted to Room 25, where the parties were.
"It was clear they were causing a noise nuisance and disturbance. There was no reply to knocking on the door. Police were given a key and entered the room."
"Hursthouse was heavily intoxicated and smelt of alcohol. She was slurring her words and was unsteady on her feet."
They found Boultbee 'lying in bed' while Hursthous told them the noise was because of the Valentine's Day sex.
The hotel said £1,000 damage had been caused - and that £250 of that was to cover compensation the hotel had had to give to people in three other rooms.
Mike Kimberley, representing Boultbee, of Branston Road, Burton, said his client, who has 33 previous convictions for 65 offences, is an alcoholic.
Mr Kimberley said: "The young lady saw he was suffering from depression and thought it was a good idea to go away for a romantic night. They were totally inebriated, angry and whatever.
"The manager came. He was fully co-operative and Boultbee did say he would pay for any damage. He remembers kicking the bathroom door. The hotel has to be compensated. It is only right he pays £500 compensation.
"Doctors have told him if he continues with his current lifestyle he will be dead within two years."
Mark Bromley, mitigating for Hursthouse, of Sycamore Road, Burton, who has no previous convictions, said: "Unfortunately this planned romantic over-exuberant intimacy caused a disturbance for other residents of the hotel.
"She also accepts that she should pay towards the problems that were caused. They spent nearly £200 for this break away for two days. They had to cut their stay short because of the incident."
Magistrates handed Boultbee a 12 month conditional discharge and Hursthouse was given a six month conditional discharge.
Both defendants were ordered to pay £500 compensation, £135 costs and a £26 surcharge.
