A’selfish’ family has been chastised for parking their campervan on a beach in the United Kingdom where automobiles are not permitted.
A FAMILY has been labelled “disgusting” for parking their campervan on a beach in the United Kingdom where cars are prohibited.
Locals near Swanpool beach in Falmouth, Cornwall, were outraged when the vehicle was abandoned on the sand overnight. “No cars on the beach, please,” reads a sign on the beach.
Locals claimed they had questioned the family, but they lingered on the beach all night.
They may have also set fire to the beach, according to sources.
One resident told Cornwall Live that a toddler was among the group.
“Just a warning to anybody crossing Swanpool beach tonight, there is a camper van directly on the sand in front of the café with a couple of adults and a child,” Maria Harris stated.
“Assuming they’re allowed to stay on the beach till the morning since there’s nowhere else to camp in the region, burning plastic on the fire, and so on.
“There is a notice plainly stating that vehicles are not permitted on the beach.”
Residents said they phoned the cops, but the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary stated nothing was logged in their system.
Locals expressed their displeasure with the behavior on social media.
“Campervans should be hauled away and impounded,” one wrote. Embarrassing behavior.”
“These types of tourists give a poor name to the genuine ones who respect the rules,” said another.
“People no longer respect each other,” a third said.
“This kind of behavior has to stop,” says another response.
Recently, there has been increased pressure on UK tourist locations to impose a tourism tax in order to aid local economies.
Tourists should be taxed in towns like Falmouth and Blackpool, Lancashire, to pay for the rubbish and demand on public services caused by tourists, according to some.
