Top European city cracks down on hen and stag dos | The Sun

A SPANISH holiday hotspot is set to get tougher on stag and hen parties by bringing in some strict new rules.

Proposed regulations hope to clamp down on indecent outfits and "obscene acts" often seen at wild bachelor parties.

The Spanish city of Seville in Andalusia plans to bring in new laws that specifically ban anyone from getting naked in the street or wearing just underwear alone.

According to the Times, the mayor of Seville, José Luis Sanz, announced the plans last week.

The Spanish mayor said that the city "has no interest whatsoever" in any tourism brought in from wild bachelor parties.

Mr Sanz added: "Anyone can celebrate their bachelor party in Seville.

"What we don’t view favourably are groups of people dressed as whatever, with brass bands behind them, disturbing the many residents of Seville — especially in areas of the historic centre — who also have the right to enjoy their city."

The potential ban would also forbid fancy dress costumes containing sexist elements as well as any acts of "obscene exhibitionism".

It's not clear when the ban will come into force, and whether any fines will be issued to revellers who are seen flouting the new rules.

Earlier this year, the local government in Costa del Sol brought in similar new laws.

In the Costa del Sol tourists are also banned from getting naked or wearing just their underwear in the streets.

Meanwhile, anyone carrying objects that "represent human genitals" or "dolls of a sexual nature" can also be fined.

Anyone who breaks the rules could be slapped with a €750 (£668) fine.

Malaga began implementing strict laws last year, including fines for using megaphones or general unruly behaviour, as well as drinking in the street.

Some pubs and clubs in the city even have a total ban on stag or hen parties and refuse to let revellers inside.

Meanwhile, Brits were given strict rules to follow throughout parts of Spain last year.

And some Spanish beaches introduced smoking bans.
