A man was subjected to a homophobic attack as he sunbathed naked on a beach.
He was on the nudist section of Portslade beach next to Shoreham Harbour on Saturday afternoon when he was targeted by a man on the regular public beach.
The victim had wandered on to the main section of beach to try to find a friend.
The other man grew irate and began shouting at him, hurling abuse.
He said: “The nudist beach isn’t very well defined. I walked across to the main beach to look for a friend.
“There was a couple there and the man started screaming his face off. It was really intimidating.”
The victim said the man shouted at him for showing his naked body in front of his wife before launching into a tirade of homophobic abuse.
He said: “I tried to walk away but he just kept shouting. He was getting increasingly mad.
