Naked man faces life in prison

The naked rambler, Stephen Gough, has been told he will spend the rest of his life behind bars if he continues refusing to wear clothes in public.
The former Royal Marine, who became notorious for his naked hike from Land's End to John O'Groats in 2003, has spent much of the past seven years in prison for repeatedly appearing nude in public.
He was yesterday found guilty of breaching the peace when he walked naked from Perth prison in December after finishing a 12 month sentence for the same offence. Mr. Gough was warned he will continue to be jailed every time he steps out of prison without any clothes on.
The 50-year-old, who conducted his own defense while appearing in court completely naked, turned down an offer to walk free yesterday on the condition that he got dressed.
