ANSA: 40 year old British National from Naples was arrested and fined over € 1,000 after being caught stealing sand from a beach in Sardegna.

The person was caught with a bottle full of sand he took to keep as a souvenir from the beach in Gallura.

The regional council and the WWF have embarked on a campaign to save the beaches. This was amplified overseas including Germany where tourists visiting the Italian island spoke about the dangers on the natural habitat such action creates.
