Couple arrested for having sex on the beach


A couple have been arrested after members of the public spotted them having sex on a beach in Florida.

Tanya Wheeler, 34, and Ward Powell, 53, had started off the with an early-morning skinny dip and had moved onto the beach in Manapalan, Palm Beach County.

According to the Sun Sentinel, a person then called the police to report that two "suspicious" people were having sex on the beach.

Two officers found the pair still naked, and according to the Daily Mail, Powell apologised and said he "knew better but one thing led to another".

The pair now face charges of lewd behaviour and indecent exposure in public.

Back in July 2012, 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.

And, in August 2012, holidaymakers were left "disgusted" after a couple unashamedly had loud sex in broad daylight on Brighton beach.

The incident occurred on the public side of Brighton beach, not far from Brighton pier, right near tourists and children.
