For stealing the pebbles on the beach of the British of Cornwall is ready to be ruthlessly fined
The Briton was forced to drive hundreds of miles to return to the beach, in the County of Cornwall, where he was vacationing, “the stolen stones”.
Otherwise, he was threatened with administrative prosecution and a fine of £ 1,000. It is known that the authorities of Cornwall caught up with him on your return from holiday, but exactly how it tracked — not reported.
Bay Crackington haven, where the rest of the tourist is one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall and thousands of tourists take away the stones on the memory. However, the local Council, which owns 57 beaches of the County, has sounded the alarm, claiming that this practice harms the ecology of the coast.
At first glance, it is harmless, but considering how many gems year after year taken away thousands and thousands of tourists, there is a real threat coastal erosion, destruction of natural flood protection, and destruction of flora and fauna.The representative of the Council
The desire of the authorities of the County to fight this phenomenon it is clear to many, however, according to tourists and local residents, they do it very aggressively.
For example, on the entire length of the beach at the end of July were installed warning signs with a very harsh and impolite language.
