A SHOCKED beachgoer captured the moment a man started urinating on the beach.

Photographer Lette Lou said the man looked around before relieving himself on the beach by the West Pier in Brighton over the Easter weekend.

Conservative city councillor Dawn Barnett has described the man’s toilet break as an “absolute disgrace”.

She said: “There are toilets on the seafront and most people will go before heading on to the beach.

“I suppose the man had been on the beer all day and could not wait, but this is a criminal offence. It’s against the law and the fact is there are children and holidaymakers in there and he’s doing this in front of them.”

Another man was also pictured urinating on the beach in Hove at the weekend. He was spotted urinating on a bollard next to a group of people.
