Oktoberfest boob over topless pics

Road safety experts are drawing up special road signs warning drivers of drunks in the road after a landmark legal ruling ahead of Europe's biggest beer festival.

A motorcyclist was this week ordered to pay more than 2,000 GBP compensation to a drunk who'd wandered in front of her bike during the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.

Now traffic authorities have designed signs to warn motorists to expect erratic behaviour from pie-eyed pedestrians during the week-long booze-up.

"They are not like ordinary pedestrians. They are almost uniformly drunk and liable to behave very strangely and dangerously. Motorists need to beware," said one traffic expert.

Meanwhile, critics said festival organisers had boobed over plans to ban the media from the worst of the drunken antics of visitors.

Sponsors in charge of accreditation have banned photographers from snapping "women lifting their tops" or any other outrageous behaviour.

And Munich Tourist Office yesterday (thursday) confirmed that they would ban snappers taking "pictures or filming drunken people or women lifting their shirts".

Stefan Hempl - spokesman for Bavaria's state-owned brewery Hofbrauhaus - said: "Photographers have to do what I say.

"I don't want any nakedness, or any boobs. I'm sticking to that rule. Our guests have a right to privacy."
