Anyone could choose to sit and collate registration numbers are they are publicly available for anyone to see - how they then use this information could be subject to separate privacy laws.
anyone who engages in homosexual or heterosexual intercourse in public can find themselves charged with offences under the Public Order Act, if the police have sufficient evidence to convince a court of law that the activity was witnessed by a third party, or there was a high likelihood of the activity being witnessed by a third party - however this obvious;y does not include sitting in a parked vehicle in any location.
The police do have the ability to ask why you are there as there are issues regarding fly tipping, theft from parked vehicles including HGVs. Local residents could also complain about increased noise, traffic and general mess caused from those within a lay by.
It could be argued that those who frequent such lay-bys bring a lot of attention on to themselves ie - constantly driving up and down, leaving used condoms, lube tissues etc. and therefore attract the wroth of the locals.
in essence, sitting in your car is not illegal but it doesn't stop the police asking you why you are there.
A police officer can stop you and request a search for a variety of reasons and under many acts
including but by no means limited to looking for items related to stolen goods offensive weapons
knives and bladed articles theft burglary etc
On top of this and because of the rural locations of many cruising areas there are a number of laws relating to poaching which could be used to speak you

Does anyone know how the law stands with regard to being parked in a layby that is known for gay cruising. I mean actually just sitting in the car not doing anything! Also is it legal for someone (not police) to sit there and take registrations?
Thanks for your advice guys

Curiousnhorny In England and Wales it is an offence to engage in any sexual activity in a public toilet (those provided by the local authority on the street, in stores, restaurants, shopping centres, railway stations, motorway service areas, cinemas etc.), regardless of gender. The cubicles, even locked, are not seen as private.
Technically, stores, restaurants and shopping precinct etc. toilets are private property to which the public are allowed access, but in practice it amounts to the same thing, as venue staff can call the police if they suspect that something sexual is going on. The police will use their powers of arrest under the Sexual Offences Act 2003, Section 71, as the definition of a public toilet includes all such places.
However, in certain pubs, clubs or similar venues, where sexual activity might be expected, it is very unlikely that the police would ever become involved unless there were a complaint of a serious incident (assault, affray, or other serious criminal activity). Places like Hoist in London are in effect private parties, with a strict entry system. The same goes for gay saunas or sex cinemas, they are controlled private venues, not public places.
Best advice is to seek out private venues for glory hole fun. It is still exciting, but without the danger of being arrested.
Although frowned upon by most Chief Constables, and Magistrates, the use of "pretty policemen" to entrap men does continue. It may be that the pretty boy waves his dick on his side of the hole and strokes the hole in the wall, and at the moment the other person puts their willy in the hole two click click bursts on the personal radio signal the two burly uniformed ones waiting silently outside to bash the door, or peek over the top, and hey presto! Another arrest. The pretty policeman melts into the night, and is not needed as the other policemen witnessed the act. They will, of course deny that any such pretty police exist.

What is the legal standpoint regarding the use of gloryholes? Really wanna use some but I'm married and can't risk things getting back to missus should I get caught using one.
