A couple caught having sex at 2am on the coldest night for 26 years were ticked off by police today.

Cops warned such dangerous liaisons in public were not permitted during lockdown and reminded randy couples about social distancing.

Officers caught the saucy pair romping on Dartmoor in Devon as temperatures plummeted to zero 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.
