Police pour water over BBQ after beach-goers ‘refuse to leave’ during lockdown

Police have been filmed pouring water over a barbecue after two people on a beach allegedly refused to leave during the coronavirus lockdown.

One yellow-jacketed officer can be seen tipping a helmet full of water onto the BBQ as a colleague watches on.

The incident appears to have taken place at Hove beach in Brighton, after Sussex Police tweeted on Saturday that two people had been “summonsed to attend court after breaching the Coronavirus Act 2020 by having a BBQ on Hove beach.”

The force added: “Thank you to everyone that stayed away from beauty spots and beaches today. We know it isn’t easy.”

People were warned over the weekend not to put lives at risk by visiting beaches, parks and other beauty spots during the warm weather.
