Bathers fined for skinny dipping



A Spanish couple have been fined £600 each after they were caught bathing naked in waters off the Italian island of Capri.

The man and woman, who have not been named, were caught out after outraged holidaymakers called police when they spotted the pair skinny dipping.

An officer called them to the shore at Marina Piccola and they were taken to the local station where the 20 year old girl and the 22 year old man were fined.

A spokesman said:''We had several calls from people on the beach to say the couple were swimming naked and they were upset because children were allowed.

''A patrol was sent to the beach and the couple ordered out of the water and taken to the local police station where they were fined £600 each for breaching obscenity laws - an expensive price to pay for a naked swim.''
