Anti-burqa police fine shark man!
A MAN dressed as a SHARK has been slapped with a fine under new anti-burqa laws.
The shark was advertising the opening of a new electronics store, called McShark.
As the mascot was standing outside a new outlet of the chain in Vienna, Austria, he was asked to remove his costume head by police officers.
When he refused, he was issued with a fine – which can be up to £130.
The new laws aimed at prohibiting people from covering their faces in public came into effect in Austria at the start of October.
The rule came as part of legislation approved in May that also establishes integration courses and prompts asylum seekers to do unpaid public work.
France was the first European country to outlaw face veils back in 2011.
Belgium, Bulgaria and Switzerland followed suit. IT is possible to age a lobster by counting the rings on its eyestalks
