Sunbathers warned they face jail for 'showing breasts or private parts' in Paris
London, August 2 (ANI): Police have been forced to issue a warning to topless sunbathers to cover up on the banks of the River Seine during the warm summer weather or risk a fine or even jail.
A notice posted on the Paris police website states there must be 'no breasts or private parts' on show while sunbathing.
Thousands of Parisians head to the banks of the popular tourist attraction each summer when the site is converted into an artificial beach.
But while sunbathing is generally accepted, police warn they won't be tolerating any over exposure.
A warning on their website says: "When the thermometer rises a few degrees, you may put on your best bathing suit and find a little corner of grass or the welcoming banks of the Seine to put down your towel.
"But please note that bathing suits should not be worn in official city parks and that dress should be decent and in accordance with good morals and public order.
It also says anyone caught wearing "inappropriate dress" faces a maximum 3750 euro fine (4385 dollars) and two years jail if suspected of soliciting sex.
And the website adds: "Any outfit that allows for the genital area or breasts to be seen constitutes sexual exhibition and is punishable by a year in prison." (ANI)
