Commuters on Berlin's U8 line were in for a shock on Tuesday morning when they spotted two people having sex in the middle of a station platform.

It was certainly not the wake-up that people on their way to work might have expected at 6.30am.

One passenger on the train filmed the couple on the platform with his phone as he boarded a train at Schönleinstraße station in the Kreuzberg area of the city.

Although the pair noticed that they were being recorded, they didn't allow themselves to be distracted beyond raising a middle finger to the camera as the train doors closed.

Police said that charges could only be brought in such a case if someone felt disturbed by the couple's display and reported it to the authorities.

But the couple certainly reached a broader audience than they planned, as the nine-second video has been viewed almost 200,000 times on the LiveLeak website.
