A UK beach has been savaged by Tripadvisor users, with one calling it a "filthy dump" and another saying they were even threatened by donkey ride staff.
Scarborough Beach has 50 ratings for "terrible" and 59 as "poor" out of a total of 3,539 reviews on the site, and pictures reveal the full extent of the problems – with rubbish piling up along the shoreline.
One user said that they "couldn't wait to get out of there" after a visit and another branded it a "dystopian" place.

"The sand seems permanently wet. Time seems to have stopped in the 1980s. Dystopian place. Couldn’t wait to get out of here," they wrote.
Another said: "Full of screaming children, the most irritating seagulls attacking you and your stuff and, donkey ride! They smell and are pissing on the beach where children are playing!
"Morons leaving stuff close to the sea forgetting about the tides, so the beach is full of abandonned blankets and any sort of trash you can imagine. What a sad and poor place… obviously it's not the beach, it's the type of people who go there."
One person even claimed the donkey ride staff were "threatening".
They said they visited in November and were "surprised to see donkeys still on the beach in cold wind and rain".
"Took a photo of a donkey's head and carried on my way, only to be chased by the owner and shouted at in the street for taking a photo of a donkey's head," they said.
"Demanded my phone and threatened to call the police."

A Birmingham native called the beach a "giant dog toilet" after a visit in 2018.
"Back to Scotland in future clean towns free parking and very friendly people…" a Scottish person wrote after complaining the place was dirty and unfriendly.
A woman called Kate branded it "CRAP AND DIRTY".
The problems have been compounded by the fact that storm sewage has been discharged from a local outflow into Scarborough North Bay within the past 48 hours and there is a pollution risk warning in place – so even swimming isn't safe.
