Naked bike riders should cover up, says Brighton and Hove's top cop
4:45pm Wednesday 5th June 2013 in News
Nude bike riders have been urged to cover up by a city’s police chief.
Chief Superintendent Nev Kemp, Brighton and Hove police commander, said cyclists in the annual Naked Bike Ride would be told to “conceal their most intimate parts”.
The ride sets off from Preston Park this Sunday with up to a thousand bikers expected to bare all.
Ch Supt Kemp said: “We will deal positively, but proportionately, with any indications that a crime has been committed. Nudity is not automatically an offence, but depends on the circumstances and intention of the person who is naked.
“I am, however, concerned about the distress that full nudity may cause to other people in the city.
“Our police liaison officers will, therefore, be encouraging anyone who is completely naked to cover their most intimate body parts from full public view.”
