Naked pensioners make their point

"It is not something I normally do - parade around Brighton in my skiddies."

Gordon Dodd says his friends and family were a little surprised when he announced he was planning to stage a naked protest at the Labour party conference.

But it was the only way Mr Dodd and his eight friends could think of to make Chancellor Gordon Brown, making a keynote speech in the hall opposite, take notice of their plight.

After a lifetime of paying into occupational pension schemes they were left with nothing when the companies they were working for went bankrupt.

The government's compensation package, unveiled last year, does not cover them - only people within three years of retirement age. There is also a ceiling of £12,000.

Naked Rambler

A naked rambler may be jailed for refusing to cover up moments after leaving prison.

Former Royal Marine Stephen Gough was stopped by officers as he passed through the gates of Edinburgh's Saughton Prison.

He had been jailed for two weeks on September 9 after being convicted of breaching the peace during a naked trek across Britain.

The 46-year-old from Bournemouth was freed on Friday but did not make it beyond the prison gates before being taken back into custody.

Edinburgh Sheriff Court released him on bail until December when he will face another charge of breaching the peace.

France bares all for sake of art

Almost 1,500 men and women have stripped naked in the name of art in the French city of Lyon.

The volunteers gathered before dawn to join the latest nude photo shoot by New York artist Spencer Tunick.

Directed by the artist from a crane, they posed with arms and legs in the air between shipping containers in Lyon's port, and on a waterfront.

Previous shoots have been held in New York, Belgium, Barcelona and Brazil, as well as London and Tyneside in the UK.

Gardening buff

Bill Schroer doesn't wear blue jeans and work shoes when he works in his garden.

He doesn't wear gloves or a hat.

In fact, Schroer wears nothing at all.

And the 56-year-old likes to encourage the rest of us to become nude gardeners, too.

Schroer, you see, is a confirmed, enthusiastic "naturist" who has decided, with his fellow members of the board of the Naturist Action Committee, that nudism no longer should be kept low profile.

The human body is beautiful in its natural state, and it's time to openly encourage nude activities, the Battle Creek resident said.

And he wants the community to get involved in the Nature Action Committee's "World Nude Gardening Day" event on Saturday.
