A driver trying to get into the closed Shell Bay car park got a nasty surprise.

It's after two days of packed beaches across Dorset as thousands flocked to the county in the hot weather.

After Shell Bay car park closed, one driver tried to enter through the exit, which has one-way spikes.

Purbeck Police say they found and extinguished 6 barbecues and stopped a camp that had been set up around Studland's beaches.

Some people were still arriving at 9 and 10 pm with tents.
