Police had to take action after two people drove their cars onto a North Yorkshire beach forcing families to flee.
Officers were called when the two BMWs drove onto Filey beach early yesterday evening (Saturday).
A video posted online show one of the drivers revving up and performing sharp turns churning up the sand.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “We received reports via our force control room of a black BMW and blue BMW driving on the beach at Filey causing members of the public to leave in order to ensure their safety.
“Our response officers attended the location and promptly located the drivers who were visitors to the Filey.”
Both drivers were reported for careless driving – an endorsable offence for which the standard penalty is three penalty points and a £100 fine.
They were also issued with an S59 warning for “using a vehicle in a manner causing alarm, distress or annoyance”.
Such a warning applies to both the driver and the vehicle and lasts for 12 months.
“If the vehicle or driver is linked to a further report of anti-social driving the vehicle will be seized by police,” the spokesperson said.
The incident came at the end of an eventful day at Filey. At midday yesterday part of the beach was closed following concerns that human remains had been found.
The cordon was later lifted after it was confirmed that they were animal bones.
