'Bridezilla' was stopped by police after the newly-wed attempted to scale a massive fence to reach a beauty spot and take the perfect wedding snaps.

The bride, groom, and photographer were trying to reach the idyllic shoreline of Foremark Reservoir in Repton, South Derbyshire, ignoring the signs and 6ft safety barriers urging people not to go near the dangerous waters.

Stunned cops described the newlyweds as "groomzilla and bridezilla", reports Staffordshire Live.

Local authorities said: "With no respect for the newly-constructed safety barriers, these newlyweds, along with a professional photographer, clambered over a restricted enclosure and descended to a sandy area to pose for some matrimonial snaps.

"For the avoidance of doubt, Foremark water is not the set of a Maldives wedding backdrop – it is a working reservoir and the barriers are there for a reason."

The venue itself has long been plagued by people ignoring signs to swim in the reservoir, which has freezing, toxic waters, and dangerous undercurrents.

During the recent hot weather gangs of youths have broken through the fences to hold parties on the beach area.

There has also been a major search operation there involving a police helicopter when a drunk man went for a dip in the water. Worried bystanders called police when he did not remerge, but it is believed he got out safe.

The 850-metre metal fence was put up at the site earlier this year after police were left exasperated by people ignoring warnings.

"Doughnut-driving clowns" have also been spotted skidding around the venue's car parks, according to authorities.

A spokesman said: "Despite the widely-known dangers of tires emitting smoke from the mechanical friction, there has been a recent increase of this antisocial behaviour. Anyone caught driving in this manner will be immediately issued with a Section 59 warning notice under the Police Reform Act (2002). And if we see you doing it again in the next 12 months we will seize your vehicle."

Officers from safer neighbourhood teams are now appealing for visitors to respect the countryside and avoid antisocial behaviour as temperatures soar this week.

Police said they will be conducting increased patrols at Foremark Reservoir.
