They caught the saucy pair having sex on Dartmoor in Devon as temperatures dropped to zero degrees overnight.

Tavistock Police tweeted about the raunchy rendezvous in the early hours of this morning, during the UK's coldest night for 26 years.

They said that such behaviour was in breach of a number of Covid rules.

The tweet read: "Fornicating under the stars, on the moors, may seem like this years latest romcom, but it is not an essential journey and certainly breaks social distancing guidance.

"Please continue to abide by Covid-19 legislation to help prevent the spread of Covid."

The couples identity has been spared and there was no indication on whether they were given a fine.

But several people replied to the tweet including some congratulating the couple for their actions.

One wrote: "In this weather? Makes you proud to be British."

But for others it was a degree to far. Another member of the public added: "It's a bit cold for that."

Devon and Cornwall Police have been approached for further comment.
