NO NUDE IS GOOD NEWS AS THE BBC BAN RAM­BLER DOC

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE BBC post­poned a planned doc­u­men­tary about naked ram­bler Stephen Gough af­ter his ar­rest for breach­ing an anti-so­cial be­hav­iour or­der (ASBO) that bans him from bar­ing all in pub­lic.

The show about the for­mer Royal Marine, which fol­lowed his at­tempt to walk naked 400 miles from Scot­land to his home in Eastleigh, Hamps, was sched­uled to be shown on BBC1 at 10.35pm last night. Crown Court on Septem­ber 11 charged with breach­ing an ASBO af­ter he was ar­rested in Winch­ester last week.

Gough has now been sen­tenced to more than six years in prison and re­ceived dozens of con­vic­tions for his be­lief that it is his hu­man right to be naked in pub­lic.

He gained no­to­ri­ety when he walked naked from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 2003 and again in 2005.
