Nottingham City Council yesterday urged families to carry on photographing their children at the Nottingham Riviera beach, despite signs stating that they aren't allowed.
A complaint was made by a visitor to the £200,000 urban beach project regarding the rules which state: 'No photographs unless taken by our official photographer'. This prompted the Council to clarify the situation and yesterday a spokesman said: “The signs are provided so security staff can deal with anybody they feel might be taking inappropriate photographs.”
He added: “Anybody taking family snaps isn't going to get stopped. There is no problem about taking photographs on the beach.”
The beach opened at the end of July and was promoted as “free fun” for families watching their money in the recession.
