During the extremely warm weather we’re experiencing it can often be tempting to sunbathe out the back garden or even in the front garden of your house.
Some people even take it one step further and go completely naked to get a tan. However, you may want to think again, as policies have now adviced you to let your neighbours know in advance to aviod any tension.
A police warning has been issued for those tanners looking to go nude in the gardens, suggesting that sunbathing naked could be confined to one part of the garden which can be screened from the view.
Saying: “No-one has the right to spy on you and if you find that your neighbour is leaning out of an upstairs window or standing on the top of a step ladder in order to see you then he or she may well be committing an offence.”
While it is not illegal for women to remove their tops in public, the Crown Prosecution Service states: “In the case of naturism a balance needs to be struck between the naturist’s right to freedom of expression and the right of the wider public to be protected from harassment, alarm and distress.”
