A naturist has spoken out after a naked man was seen doing squats on a bridge over a busy stretch of Midlands road yesterday.
Stuart Haywood, from Midway, in Swadlincote, in the Midlands, spoke out after drivers were left baffled by the nude man on Wednesday, September 18.
The man with no clothes was spotted exercising by gobsmacked motorists over a busy Burton-upon-Trent bridge.
Stuart has said, even as a naturist, he would never start exercising on a town centre footbridge – unless it was for a charitable event, with permission from the police.
The 82-year-old commented after a naked man was snapped by a passerby doing squats and lunges on the footbridge over St Peter’s Bridge yesterday (Thursday September 18).
It is not clear why the man he had chosen to do his exercises on the bridge rather than in the privacy of his own home, but Staffordshire Police have confirmed the incident has not been reported to them.
Mr Haywood, who has been stripping off for pleasure for almost 10 years and takes regular breaks to naturist camps, said: “I do not know the man or why he is doing his exercises in a very public place.
“Being naked in public is not an offence but causing alarm or distress is.
“As a confirmed naturist I would never do that unless it was for a charitable event and it had been given the ok by the police.
