He is the officious pipsqueak who tried to stop Brighton swimmers having their Christmas Day sea bathe. The Council closed the beach for the day to halt this tradition.
People were asked to stay on the path or high up on the beach, especially when the sea conditions were rough ... hold children's hands on the beach ... and keep pets on leads and away from the shoreline.
Dozens of swimmers went for a Christmas Day dip despite efforts to prevent the annual tradition from taking place.The fun bucket that is Chris Ingall should be ashamed after his advice was spurned.
A group of swimmers braved the chilly water on Hove seafront although one said that it was the warmest Christmas Day in recent memory.
But he probably isn't.
