A wee in the sea to cost you £650 in this Spanish town

People are wondering how on earth the Spanish city's new rule will be enforced

The Spanish city of Vigo has introduced a new rule that would see members of the public fined up to 750 Euros for peeing in any public space.

This includes “physiological evacuations in the sea or on the beach” so any trips into the sea for a quick wee will now come with a hefty £650 fine.

There is a lot of scepticism as to how the council in northwest Spain will actually enforce the new rule.

Town officials will be installing new public lavatories to curb the behaviour and cope with demand.
