Outrage as couple caught having sex on Brighton beach

The Argus: Police talk to the couple on the beach after the incident – Caters News Agency Police talk to the couple on the beach after the incident – Caters News Agency

Families called police after a couple were seen having sex on the beach in broad daylight.

The half naked couple were arrested after committing the lewd act just yards from children and holidaymakers on Brighton beach at 9am.

However, police let the pair off with a fine.

Graphic photos of the cavorting couple, which are too explicit for The Argus to publish, came to light yesterday (August 23) after city leaders and tourism bosses condemned stag and hen parties for damaging the image of Brighton and Hove.

Geoffrey Bowden, Brighton and Hove City Council ’s cabinet member for tourism, said he was “appalled” by the incident.

Shocked witness Simon Cummins, 30, from Essex, was on holiday in the city with friends Ben Stone and Richard Jones, when he saw what was happening.

He said: “The nearest families were ten metres away, if that. there were kids playing nearby.

“It was disgusting.

“I have young nephews and nieces and if I had seen that kind of thing going on in front of them I would have had a word.

“The woman and the man didn’t look like they were druggies, or dishevelled.

“They looked like normal, everyday people.

“It was a horrible sight to see.

“At one point a little boy pointed over at the couple and his mum had to haul him off in disgust.

“It’s not Ibiza at 3am in the morning.

“This was in broad daylight with families around and they just didn’t seem to care.

“They should have been locked up.”

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police confirmed officers attended the raunchy scene on Sunday.

She said: “Police were called |to Brighton beach, near West Street, on Sunday, August 19, at 9am where it was reported a couple were believed to be having sex.

“Two people were arrested and given fixed penalty notices.”

They should have gone to Duke's Mound. Anything goes there and they will be expected to leave their sexual detritus behind as proof of the activity.

As already said, getting a fine is not being "let off"? It is probably more than they would get if they were summonsed to magistrates court and has saved taxpayers court time. Plus they will have a criminal record now. - so no "outrage" from this commentator.

Some of you are so outraged , especially you, Simon Cummins you need to get out more.
I have watched the video, purely in the interests of research, of course!
Okay, they are having sex on the beach. It is 9.00am, and there is hardly anyone about. The nearest people to them are at least 50 metres away. Anyone walking along the path with kids would really not be able to see very much at all. They are not having sex 'in front of children'. The nearest families are not '10 metres away', but don't let the truth get in the way of a good story!
The only people who are near enough to them and can actually see what's going on are all the men who run across the beach to film them on there camera phones! So they can hardly be outraged, can they?
Next weekend is Pride, and if previous years are anything to go by, there will be numerous sex acts performed in public over the weekend, and no one will be fined or reprimanded.
Double standards maybe?

There's a video? And some of you have bothered to watch it? Some of you don't mind people having sex in public? You're nothing more than Peeping Toms.

Well, if we can have breastfeeding in public, why not sex as well? And what a boost for the Brighton Tourist Board. They could put it on their poster for the Brighton Festival.

The wishes of people who don't want that have to be taken on board too. How about a compromise? A clearly marked part of the beach where it's OK to b0nk in public?

I thought Mary Whitehouse was dead. Now, she's alive and well and preaching to everyone her high morals and he name is Athena.

I am not agreeing with it but it goes on in Brighton all the time. In bars/club/bushes/pub
lic toilets. Your attitude of 'that's disgusting' is just snobbery. I suggest you wrap yourself in cotton wool and hide yourself away as the world is full of Sin. (and do gooders)

Neilchi, we are not talking about the sex which is available all the time on TV, films and all over the internet. We are talking real life sex, in public, regardless of whether the public actually wants to watch it. The public can't turn off real life, like they can a TV. That you seem to think it's OK to have sex in front of other people and children says more about you and the amorality of modern Brighton than it does about me.

If you can walk onto shingle iyou can walk away, and if you can see it you must also have the ability to close your eyes and not see it. Just like if you see some people fighting, you have the option to intervene or you have the option to walk away. I'm in no way condoning these people's actions, but unless you were there, you have NO RIGHT to be offended.

Strange comment. You are right, I wasn't there, but the police were, and this was reported in The Argus. What disappoints me is that people today seem to think public obscenity is legitimate behaviour and that because Brighton has a history of "dirty weekends", then anything goes. What is even more disappointing is that people seem unaware of just how low morality has sunk. Somehow, it has become fashionable to be as publically vulgar as possible, even among heirs to the throne. But it's all been done before and what goes round comes round.
