Naked Rambler angers sheriff


The Naked Rambler was jailed yesterday for three months for refusing to wear clothes during an appearance at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Gordon Liddle ordered Stephen Gough, 46, to cover himself while in the dock , but instead he appeared stark naked. He was led back to the cells while the case was heard in his absence.

Gough was only returned to the dock to be sentenced. Mr Liddle told him: "You have been given every opportunity today not to find yourself in contempt of this court. You were told it is not acceptable to appear on such a formal occasion naked but flagrantly ignored that. I do not think I have come across a clearer case of contempt of court in my professional career."

Gough, of 171 Chamberlayne Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire, had told the sheriff he was not showing disrespect by being naked but felt that it was natural. However, he added that he is not a naturist and often wears clothes.
