Police in Australia had to rescue two nude sunbathers who had been spooked by a deer.



The pair were breaking coronavirus lockdown rules in the country by sunbathing naked on a beach in New South Wales and made things worse as they got lost in the forest after being startled by the deer.

The men were fined $760 for flouting lockdown rules, with the area battling to contain new variants of COVID-19.

New South Wales Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said that their actions were most costly for the community as resources were wasted tracking the pair down.

He said: "It's difficult to legislate against idiots. Clearly, by putting people at risk by leaving home without a proper reason, and then getting lost in a national park, diverting important resources away from the health operation, they should be embarrassed."
