THIS is the shocking moment an angry jogger kicks cars parked at a busy beach spot in Cornwall.

Pawel Pasich, who lives in Plymouth, was enjoying his first trip out of the city on Wednesday since the lockdown restrictions were eased when he captured the jogger on his dashcam footage.

The man appears to be angry over all the cars parked near the beach

The video clip, captured from Mr Pasich's car, shows a man jogging along a lane near Tregantle Beach, Torpoint, when he stops and repeatedly kicks a grey Mazda.

He then continues on, and is believed to have done the same to Mr Pasich's vehicle. Mr Pasich, 39, said: "This was the first-time we have been out, aside from shopping, as a family in two months and I was expecting a nice afternoon, but this ruined the whole day."

The software developer and his wife decided to take their two-year-old son to the beach but it ended up being much busier than they thought as thousands of others across Cornwall had the same idea.

"I thought it would be good to go on a Wednesday because it would be quiet and because of the steep walk to the beach it's usually not too busy anyway," he said. "The whole idea was just to stay safe and keep away from people."

He said he's not sure why the jogger targeted the two vehicles, with them both having local number plates, but he thinks it might have been a local person angry with where they were parked.

"I could understand if another driver was annoyed at people being parked too closely to their side of the road but this was a jogger just running by," he said.

"I'm guessing he was a local guy just not happy about people parking in that spot. I wasn't breaking any laws or parking regulations and there was space for people to get by because I checked and I'm quite sure it was fine.

"There is no sidewalk or anything but he had plenty of space to run."

He added: "But even if that was not the case I don't know why someone would resort to this."

Wednesday saw the hottest temperatures of the year so far when the mercury climbed to 28.2C in Suffolk.

Tempers flared in other parts of the country as the warm and sunny conditions continued and people started to venture out more as the coronavirus lockdown restrictions were eased.

A father who tried to go for a walk in Stoney Bank Quarry, Lancashire, was annoyed with the amount of litter people had left behind after young revellers held an illegal party.

James Bunting, 41, from Bolton, said he "couldn't care less [about] millennial attitude" of the 100 or so young people who went to the rave and inhaled "hippy crack" (nixtrous oxide).

Cops in the Peak District also warned day-trippers to stay away after the area was blighted by gridlocked traffic and lines of cars clogging the roads.

Ministers now fear the UK could go "back to square one" in trying to get the coronavirus under control if Britons do not adhere to lockdown rules.
