Stephen Gough, man dubbed 'the naked rambler for his determination to wander the length and breadth of Britain in the nude will stand trial for his actions. Stephen Gough was arrested for allegedly outraging public decency in a shop while wearing just his walking boots, socks, a hat and a rucksack.
Parents in a village had reported Gough to police after spotting him walking while local children were coming out of school. Judge Patrick Eccles at Oxford Crown Court rejected an application by Gough's lawyer to have the charge dismissed. He was arrested in Carterton, Oxfordshire.
