 Wardens Set To Patrol Nudist Beach In Studland After Sexual Incidents
Community wardens have been called in to patrol a popular nudist beach in England, after there was a rise in sexual misconduct.

According to the Daily Telegraph, local police in Studland Bay, Dorset, trained the wardens to spot sexual misconduct and incidents, which threaten "to bring naturism into disrepute".

The initiative was taken to make visitors to the internationally renowned nudist beach and local residents feel safer, after nine sexual offenses were recorded in the last three years.

"They will be a point of contact in incidents that may occur on the beaches such as littering, unauthorized fires and barbecues, dog fouling, illegal parking, sexual misconduct or incidents which threaten to bring naturism into disrepute," quoted a Dorset police spokesman as saying.

The community wardens will be highly visible in bright yellow T-shirts and will work alongside existing officers from Dorset Police.

Dorset police sergeant Des Connor said that Studland had welcomed naturists for more than 90 years, but recent reports of sexual misconduct have threatened to bring naturism into disrepute.

"We will not tolerate any unlawful behavior and ask that all residents and visitors to the area respect the naturists and the freedom in which they wish to enjoy life," Connor added.
