A turn of the century by-law prohibiting 'wilful jostling' in the streets of Bexhill-on-Sea has been resurrected by Rother DC.

Police asked if the offence of wilful jostling could be preserved to prosecute a group of youths disturbing pedestrians in Sidley, on the outskirts of Bexhill.

According to the council there have been no prosecutions yet, but a fine, originally of £5 and now increased to £50, can be enforced on two or more people who continue 'willfully jostling, obstructing or annoying' pedestrians after being asked to stop by a police officer.
