City council bosses want stronger enforcement along the beaches in Kent, from Herne Bay to Whitstable.

Sunseekers will also be slapped with a fine for using a barbeque, camping overnight, carrying catapults, and for dangerous cycling along the 14-mile seafront.

Cllr Ashley Clark, the authority’s lead member for enforcement, insists it is not an attempt to “kill fun.”

Instead, the rules will stop “our beaches being covered in glass”.

He said: “We’ve had numerous complaints from people who try to walk on the beach and find broken glass all over the place.

“We don’t want that. It’s got to stop. People get injured – I and others have been cut by glass at the beach – and animals get cut.

“And when certain people see bottles, they go around smashing them. We’ve been having yobs having bottle-smashing competitions.

“We don’t want to kill fun. We want people to use the beach without being endangered. It’s limited specifically to the beach because that’s where the problem is and people tend to have bare feet.”

The clampdown is part of the city council’s proposed new public space protection order – which is set to launch this summer.

Fixed penalty notices of up to £100 could be issued to anyone taking part in the banned summer activities.

In a newly-published report, city council bosses say: “We want to make residents feel safer and happier about where they live, and make sure the district continues to be a great destination to visit.

“The PSPO outlines measures to tackle anti-social behaviour and issues that have been identified in our coastal areas which are detrimental to quality of life.”

This comes after Brits heading south to Brighton during the warm weather were warned that this summer activity has been banned – and they could be slapped with a penalty.

People who light a barbecue on a beach in Brighton this summer face a fine of up to £100.

The Green-run council has voted to ban disposable barbecues from all beaches in Brighton and Hove and from all parks and spaces owned by the local authority.

Anyone caught lighting a disposable barbecue after July 1 will be handed a Fixed Penalty Notice for £100.

The ban will also cover balloon and lantern releases in public spaces after public concerns over their effect on wildlife and the environment.
