Swimmers at nudist beaches who had gone for a dip only to find all their belongings had been stolen by opportunistic thieves have been given a hand in Spain.

Police in Barcelona have taken to nudists beaches to help provide a modest response to victims who come out of the water and find themselves in a vulnerable situation.

The city's Guàrdia Urbana have been handing out "robbery kits", which include a pair of shorts, jandals, a metro ticket and a T-shirt with the city council's logo, reports The Guardian

So far this summer season, which officially began on May 27, 174 swimmers have received kits, according to the paper. 

The kits were first introduced in 2016.
