Holidaymakers were left "disgusted" after a couple unashamedly had loud sex in broad daylight on Brighton Beach. Scroll down for the video.
One passerby, Simon Cummins, said he and his friends were shocked by the scene, which saw a group of men crowding round to get a good look - with one even allegedly trying to join in the act.
Simon said his friends actually heard the woman's moans before turning to see a blonde female "gyrating" on top of a man.
The incident occurred on the public side of Brighton beach, not far from Brighton pier, right near tourists and children.
The couple seemed to be surrounded by a group of onlookers: Caters
Mr Cummins, from Essex, told the Daily Mail
: "It was broad daylight, the nearest families were 10 metres away if that, there were kids playing nearby. It was disgusting.
"The woman and the man didn't look like they were druggies, or dishevelled, they looked like normal everyday people, except it looked like they were [having sex] on a beach in the middle of the day.
"It was like an orgy or the last days of Rome, 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.
"As it went on things got even worse when a few blokes seem to turn up. It was disgraceful.
"When the police finally turned up I was shocked because it seemed to me they were almost scared about approaching the couple, and then they just gave them a fine. They should have been locked up."
A spokesman for Sussex Police confirmed the incident on Sunday, telling the Daily Mail
: '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 a fixed penalty notices.'
It's not the first time this summer that Brits have been caught behaving badly on the beach; back in July police had to intervene when parents spotted a couple having sex on the beach in Ramsgate, Kent
Holidaymakers reportedly looked on horrified as the young couple were spotted getting frisky just a few feet away from the play area close to the Great Wall of Ramsgate.
The news comes as a third of British women admitted having sex on the beach on holiday
in a recent poll - but we'd like to think that was mostly under the cover of darkness...
Guess how many British women have had sex on the beach?
