TV Production Specialist Streaked In Deserted Car Park Late One Night

The stressed manager of a television production company that provides tech support to the BBC and Sky Sports stripped naked in a deserted car park to “feel cold air on his skin.”

Steven Richard Barclay, 38, drove late one night to the deserted business park, but did not know motion-detector CCTV cameras captured his bizarre strip show.

He is a fibre optics specialist for NEP Broadcasting and travels abroad extensively covering events.

Barclay, who lives in a £1.2m home at Claremont Road, Teddington pleaded guilty to outraging public decency and was conditionally discharged for 18 months.

He attended £14,700-a year Halliford School, Shepperton and is a graduate of Kingston University.

Wimbledon Magistrates Court heard on Thursday Barclay drove to Teddington Business Park at 11.00pm on March 11.

“The owner of the venue was alerted on his phone that one of the security cameras was triggered by sensor motion,” explained prosecutor Miss Caroline Mungal.

“The camera shows an Alfa Romeo car and a man, the defendant, getting out naked.

“There were two females walking nearby who did not appear to notice him as there was a wall between them.”

Barclay was seen to relieve himself in the car park. “He walked back to the vehicle naked and drove off.”

He was traced via the car’s number plate and arrested.

Barclay’s lawyer Mr. Chris Coss told the court: “He was under an overwhelming level of stress and unable to cope drove to this deserted car park.

“He felt claustrophobic and wanted to feel cold air on his skin. It was a walled car park and he went over to one area to urinate unaware the two women were there.

“At NEP UK he is head of fibre optic cables and works for the BBC and Sky Sports.

“He is now in a management role and has people working for him and has to undertake a lot of international travel.

“He has settled down, is now able to cope and is unlikely to offend in the future.”

The court heard Barclay has a diagnosis for depression and has ADHD and is under the care of a psychiatrist.

He was also ordered to pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
