It is believed the same man has been going for runs in only his birthday suit across the area
This was the moment a completely nude jogger was caught on camera running at a North Staffordshire beauty spot popular with families.
A wildlife photographer was stunned to spot the naked man – wearing only a bumbag and trainers – as he snapped pictures of the sunset in the Roaches, near Leek, last week.
The 46-year-old quickly turned his lens on the man to prove to himself he wasn’t ‘seeing things’ having just woken from a nap.
It shows him retreating down a path with his bare bottom on full show as two sheep nonchalantly eat grass.
Other photos were unprintable.
It is believed the same man has been going for runs in his birthday suit along the Manifold Trail near Waterhouses, Three Shires Head near Flash and in the Goyt Valley in Buxton.
The photographer, from Leek, said: “I’m usually up there a few times a week. I was sat taking a photo of the sunset minding my own business. I then nodded off but then could hear someone coming.
“Behaviour of this type is disorderly and anyone who sees it happening should contact the police. We don’t condone behavior like this on any of our sites.”Staffordshire Wildlife Trust spokesman
“I looked around and couldn’t believe it. I thought I was dreaming. I nearly slapped myself to wake up.
“He was wearing a bum bag but nothing else.
