Where do you put your ticket on no trousers day?

Western Daily Press - - UK & World News -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple have stripped off their trousers to take a half-naked trip on the Lon­don Un­der­ground.

Crowds met out­side the Na­tional Gallery in Trafal­gar Square for the tenth an­nual No Trousers Tube Ride be­fore head­ing un­der­ground where they boarded trains on dif­fer­ent Tube lines across the cap­i­tal.

More than 100 peo­ple piled on to the Pic­cadilly Line, where they strug­gled to re­move their trousers due to the large crowds.

Reg­u­lar Sun­day pas­sen­gers were left be­wil­dered as men and women sat in their brightly-coloured un­der­wear talk­ing or read­ing, or tak­ing pic­tures of each other.

After changing to the Ju­bilee Line at Green Park, the group got off at Ca­nary Wharf to do some aer­o­bics on the plat­form be­fore jump­ing on an­other train.

Other groups set off for Lon­don land­marks, in­clud­ing one head­ing to Par­lia­ment.

Sis­ters Tessa and Matilda De­ter­d­ing said they had come for the first time be­cause they liked the idea be­hind it.

Tessa, 24, from Lon­don, said: “We read about it and thought it sounded hi­lar­i­ous. I wasn’t ner­vous about it. I quite like the sen­ti­ment be­hind it, in­stead of a stiff up­per lip it’s hav­ing a bit of a laugh.” Matilda, 22, added: “I did es­pe­cially pick out my pants, you have got to pick out a nice opaque one. You don’t want to give too much of a spec­ta­cle.”
