A MAN was arrested after abusing numerous people on Weymouth Beach.

Police were called following several complaints that the man was harassing people along the seafront yesterday.

A spokesman for Weymouth and Portland Police said: "We received numerous complaints of a male causing harassment, alarm and distress on the beach, so he was asked to move on.

"After failing to do so, he was issued with a Section 35 dispersal order. He then decided not to comply with this either, so he was arrested for breaching it."
