French police enforce burkini ban by ordering Muslim woman to remove garments on beach

Heavy-handed French police enforcing a ‘burkini ban’ forced a woman to remove her Muslim dress as she sunbathed on a beach.

Mum-of-two Siam, was approached by four officers in Nice and told to take off the baggy blue hooded top which she teamed with leggings.

The former air hostess, whose family members have been French citizens for at least three generations, said: “I wasn’t even planning to swim, just to dip my feet.”

Pictures show her soaking up the sun before being approached by the uniformed cops and surrounded. She is then seen removing the garment. It is understood she was fined the equivalent of £32 for breaking a burkini ban.
