(Scroll down for video) A woman was stunned to find photos of two guys in their underwear on her computer.

The woman told police that she was sitting at a restaurant when two guys came over to talk to her. After the men left the woman realized that her iPhone was stolen.

The next day, when she logged onto her computer, she found photos of men in their underwear. Apparently, the men were unaware that the pictures from the phone were automatically sent to the owner’s iCloud account.

After stripping to their shorts on the beach in Southend, Essex, United Kingdom, the men took a series of pictures of themselves at the beach in their underwear.

The iPhone used to take the photographs, belonged to Becky Brinklow, 27, who works as a nurse. Her phone was stolen while she ate lunch at the Varsity Bar in Southend, with her 16-month-old son named Henry at a restaurant near the beach.

“Luckily, I had insurance on the phone and I was able to receive a new phone,” Brinklow said. She went online to access all of her photos and uploaded them to her new phone.
She called police to report the incident.

The iPhone has since been blocked with the Find MyiPhone app. Police are investigating. Police are reviewing the security cameras at the restaurant where the phone was stolen. Police are confident that they will catch the thieves.
