Around a dozen naturists did away with their shorts, t-shirts and dresses as they stripped to their birthday suits at an organised event at Roanhead Beach.

The nudists were also seen topping up their tans on nearby Walney Beach.

The event has sparked a debate over whether Cumbria could capitalise on a tourism boom by hosting more events.

The idea was floated by Ron O’Hare, a semi-retired window cleaner, who has been practicing naturism for over 20 years.

He said: “I think naturism would be good for Cumbria tourism and if there were more designated areas, it would bring in more tourists to the area.

“There are a lot more naturists in Cumbria than people think. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many designated areas to go in the county.”

“Walney is not the best place to be walking around naked because it is so open and you can see other people for miles. If you’re trying to find a secluded spot where there aren’t many people, you might frighten the wildlife which I would object to.”

But South Walney Councillor, Helen Wall, fears naturist activities in Walney may disturb local people and wildlife.

She said: “Walney is not the best place to be walking around naked because it is so open and you can see other people for miles. If you’re trying to find a secluded spot where there aren’t many people, you might frighten the wildlife which I would object to.

“You can also end up upsetting people, it can be quite offensive.

“It doesn’t particularly offend me but I can see how it might offend some people.”
