Its leafy lanes and idyllic charm have helped  make it one of the most desirable places to live in Britain.

But the sordid goings-on in some of its car  parks and woods have elevated one exclusive corner of Surrey to the top of a  rather more unsavoury list.

The Elmbridge district, which includes the  wealthy commuter villages of Claygate, Esher, Oxshott, Weybridge and Cobham, is  among the most popular ‘dogging’ hotspots in the country.

In total, Surrey has 93 – double the tally  two years ago – making it the nation’s public sex capital, according to figures  from a Freedom of Information request.

Out of 222 outdoor sex sites known to police  across the UK, Surrey has almost half. In addition to the ten sites in  Elmbridge, Guildford has 16, Reigate and Banstead 13, and Mole Valley and Surrey  Heath 12 each.

Residents complain of finding condoms, sex  toys and pornographic magazines littering local beauty spots. Dominic Raab, Tory  MP for Esher and Walton, said: ‘Public places, especially woods and parks, are  for everyone to enjoy. Endorsing them as communal pick-up joints is  wrong. 

‘I’ve had complaints from women  walking  their dogs alone who were propositioned, and many parents don’t  want to take  their children anywhere near that kind of environment.’

The figures were revealed after the Mail  asked police forces across the  country to disclose the number of ‘public-sex  environments’ (PSEs) they  monitor.
