Nearly one in 20 British holidaymakers will have returned home with a sexually transmitted disease contracted while on holiday this summer, a survey has shown.

As many as 23% of people admitted to having had sex with a stranger on holiday, the poll for price comparison website Travelspec.com found.

Of these, 3% thought they had slept with someone but could not really remember because they were too drunk.

The survey, based on responses from 6,000 people, also showed that 10% of men, but only 4% of women, had sex on a plane.

A total of 35% got drunk every night when away, with 40% of men and 32% of women admitting to having had sex on the beach.

Travelspec.com managing director Rafi Neumann said: "We go on holiday to let our hair down and perhaps do things that we'd never consider at home.

"It would appear that some holidaymakers are taking this a little too far and coming back with souvenirs they didn't bargain for."
