Police extinguished a beach barbecue with a helmet in Brighton, yelled at sunworshiipers to ‘go home’ in London and fined windsurfers for driving 125 miles from the West Midlands to North wales to enjoy the waves.
Footage showed two Sussex Police officers pouring water on the flames at Brighton beach on Saturday.
Twitter user Dave Strauss filmed the officers’ confrontation with two people sat at the seaside.
Uploading the video, he wrote: ‘The ceremonial extinguishing of the bbq using a beach patrol guys helmet. Then tried to eat his wet sausage.’
