Plumber caught performing sex act on homeowner's CCTV avoids prosecution because he has not committed a crime say police

A plumber caught performing a sex act while alone in his friend's home will not be prosecuted after police said he did not commit a crime.
Leslie Burton was hired by 'best friend' John White, 40, to fix his boiler in his home in Sheffield.
But after being left alone in the house for 15 minutes, Mr Burton was caught on CCTV performing the sex act in an upstairs bedroom.
Police arrested Mr Burton, of Rotherham, but later released him and said he cannot be charged with outraging public decency because the incident occurred in a private home and was not seen by anyone.
He also cannot be charged with trespassing because he was invited into the property by Mr White, who said he felt 'violated' by Mr Burton's actions and was furious he would escape without punishment.
The only crime he could be charged with is burglary because he took a tube of lubricant from a drawer, but police told The Sun the offence would not justify the cost of a trial.
Footage showed Mr Burton, who is also a Scout leader, rifling through a bedside cabinet and finding a sex toy, before dropping his trousers.
He is then seen going into the bathroom before returning to the bedroom and exploring another drawer.
Married Mr White, who has two daughters aged five and eight, said he was out buying sandwiches when he received a phone alert from his motion sensor security system that someone was upstairs in his home.
He told The Sun: 'We have been violated in our own home by someone we trusted, and he will escape scot-free.'
Mr White, who said he had been friends with Mr Burton since he was young and the pair had been on holiday together, added: 'It's a disgrace. It should be a sexual offence but isn't covered by the law. It needs to be addressed urgently.
'It has left my wife feeling very uncomfortable and struggling to sleep.'
Mr Burton was hired through Alpha Boiler and has since left the firm following the incident in January.
The Scouts Association said it was investigating the incident and would not comment other than to say the safety of children is a 'priority'.
South Yorkshire Police said it would not confirm or deny the investigation and would not comment further.
