A man trying to walk naked from Land's End to John O'Groats has finally reached his goal.
Over the course of his journey Stephen Gough, 44 has been arrested numerous times, made several court appearances and has served two jail sentences.
He began the 900-mile walk about seven months ago as a human rights protest to celebrate the naked human form, and to try to convince the public to stop being paranoid about the naked body.
Mr Gough now plans to spend the night in John O'Groats before putting his clothes back on and heading south.
He has become famous among residents the entire length of the UK during his journey, and has been jailed for breach of the peace along the way.
He has spent his time walking, often in near freezing temperatures, wearing only socks, walking boots, his hat and his rucksack. Speaking as he approached his final goal, Mr Gough said he planned to take a dip in the sea, even with today's rain and cold temperatures.
He said: "Quite often there are big points in our lives, such as getting married, when you think 'what am I going to do after that?'
"When that time arrives it can quite often be a bit of an anti-climax and so what I'm trying to do is just try to enjoy walking along and enjoy the moment because getting there is just another moment."
Mr Gough added: "I think tonight I'll have a really big meal because I haven't really eaten in the last few days. I ran out of food and ended up having to drink out of streams."
