Get a load of the opening line:

A randy pensioner has been arrested over a sex romp in broad daylight on a packed public beach.

Randy pensioner? Were he not a “randy pensioner” would the outrage be so acute?

Several holidaymakers are said to have fled the beach in disgust before dialling 999.

BP Boss Tony Hayward Rides The Oily Gulf Stream At Isle Of Wight Yacht Race: Pictures

EARLIER we reported that BP’s PR nightmare Tony Hayward had a yacht called Bob. The swanky boat was cutting through the Isle of Wight’s waters in the JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race. ITV news reports that Hayward was in the vicinity of the yacht.
