The UK's first ever naked shopping event has been held in Central London.
There was a poor turnout for the event with only about 15 naturists turning up at the Plaza shopping centre in Oxford Street.
Oona Graham-Taylor, spokeswoman for the Plaza centre, blamed the disappointing turnout of naturists on the Euro 2004 football championships.
She said the centre would "possibly" consider holding another naked evening, says BBC News Online.
"We were actually hoping for more but it is the first event we have run and the football cut numbers down", she said.
Naturists were invited to register as naked shoppers before being allowed entry on the night. Many of the centre's shops and restaurants also offered discounts to the nude bargain hunters.
Staff remained fully clothed during the event.
Nick Mayhew, co-author of naturists' guidebook Bare Beaches, was on hand to sign copies of his book.
