British Transport Police officers got more than they bargained for when they responded to reports from a member of the public that a ‘body’ was lying within the boundaries of the railway.
As officers sped to the scene, bracing themselves emotionally for what they might find, little did they know that the ‘body’ that had been reported was, in fact, a nude sunbather.
British Transport Police Essex tweeted to say:
“Yesterday we had a call about a body within the railway boundary.
“Railway workers could only see a pair of feet but reported no signs of life.
“Rushing to the scene, officers found a man in his late 30s enjoying some nude sunbathing.
“Please don’t sunbathe nude on the railway!”.
