The man was arrested at Talacre Beach
Following the circulation of a video and many subsequent comments on social media, Chief Superintendent Nigel Harrison said: “The person was spoken to at Talacre beach as officers reasonably suspected he had committed an offence, which in this case was a breach in Coronavirus regulations.
"The man, who is from the seaside town of Rhos on Sea some 22 miles away, was arrested because his details could not be ascertained at the time in order to be reported for the suspected breach.
“The officers behaved in a calm and reasonable way as I would have expected.
“As is always the case, if the individual wishes to query or complain about the way they were treated then of course we will review the full circumstances.”
