From the Forum group of "HebWeb" on Stephen Gough's arrest in Hebden Bridge, UK:
Naked Rambler arrested
From H Gregg

I see on Hebweb that the 'naked rambler' has been arrested in Hebden Bridge.
He's obviously passionate about his mission to walk naked from Lands End to John o' Groats, and I see nothing wrong with what he's doing. Any objections must surely be based on prudery.
It might be a good idea to offer him support from the town, I suspect he has received little elsewhere.
I suggest that a fitting gesture would be for a few hundred people get naked on and around the Old Bridge, have a photo taken and pass it to the national press. Do we really think the police could arrest us all? (yes I include myself).
If there are not enough takers for doing this on public land – maybe the town hall outdoor area would be a good place for the shot.
