A popular tourist beach in the south of France has banned holidaymakers from taking selfies at the spot. Officials have dedicated two sections of the Garoupe beach a "No Braggies Zone" so beachgoers can't spend all their time bragging about their destination.

A spokesperson for the beach says, "The Garoupe beaches are among the most glamorous and pristine beaches in all of France. However, we want people to be able to enjoy our exclusive beach in the moment, not spending the majority of their time here uploading selfies and sunsets to brag to their friends and family back home."

The ban will be enforced by a team of "Holiday Spam Police" and could make topless sunbathing safe again as women have been too worried they may end up on camera.

The ban was agreed in partnership with mobile phone operator Three, with marketing director Tom Malleschitz saying, "The ban is an extreme measure, but one that we think is needed if we’re to motivate people to brag more responsibly abroad and share only the finest photos of their holidays."
