Naked hiker’s tackle ‘didn’t shock woman’

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A NAKED ram­bler has won a bat­tle to strip him of his con­vic­tion for caus­ing dis­tress to a fe­male dog walker who saw his tackle.

Na­tur­ist Nigel Keer, 42, will now continue his nude hik­ing af­ter a panel of judges gave a list of rea­sons to quash his con­vic­tion.

Mr Keer ap­pealed af­ter mag­is­trates found him guilty of the pub­lic or­der of­fence of caus­ing dis­tress to the woman at a beauty spot called Ot­ley Chevin, West Yorks, last Oc­to­ber.

A judge at Leeds Crown Court told him that the charge would be dis­missed be­cause the panel con­sid­ered it un­likely that Mr Keer’s naked walk had caused any alarm.

The court had heard that Mr Keer was ar­rested by an off-duty po­lice of­fi­cer, who said he saw a woman ap­pear “dis­tressed” when she no­ticed Mr Keer in just his hik­ing boots.

Dis­miss­ing the charges, Judge Guy Kearl said: “In view of the lo­ca­tion and time of day we do not con­sider that any­one was likely to be ha­rassed by this be­hav­iour, in­tim­i­dated or dis­tressed.” DIRT BIKE babe Kheenah Fossey is WHEELIE fit – be­cause she’s a full-blown Mo­tocross racer!

The blonde stunna might look a preened and pol­ished glamour puss, a girl who’d run away shriek­ing at the first sign of mud.

But hard­nut Kheenah is a pro mo­tor­cy­cle racer who com­petes in the Maxxis British Mo­tocross Cham­pi­onship.

The no-non­sense 20-year-old caught the bug from her dad, Kevin Fossey, who’s also a big name on the Mo­tocross cir­cuit.

And while the 32E beauty from Northamp­ton looks per­fect in our sen­sa­tional pics, she’s hid­ing all man­ner of scars, cuts and bruises – and she’s usu­ally caked head to toe in MUCK!

Kheenah, who’s a mem­ber of the Northamp­ton Mo­tocross Club and rides a Yamaha YZ 125cc bike, ex­plained: “I used to get dragged to Mo­tocross cir­cuits all over the UK with my dad.

“Af­ter a while I thought, ‘Sod sit­ting in the van all day, I’m go­ing it a try my­self ’.

“Some of the lads don’t like get­ting over­taken by a girl, es­pe­cially as my blonde hair is al­ways fall­ing out of the back of my hel­met!

“But they know I take rac­ing se­ri­ously. I’ve had just as many crashes and prangs as they have, and I’ve got plenty of scars to show off.

“I re­cently broke my wrist – it was jut­ting off at a right an­gle to my arm – and I’ve bro­ken loads of bones in my feet and hands.

“It’s all just part and par­cel of be­ing a mo­tocross racer and af­ter a while you hon­estly get used to the pain.”
