Naked Rambler makes legal history as he appears before judges in nude...

 A man known as the Naked Rambler has made legal history - by appearing before leading judges in the nude.

Former marine Stephen Gough, from Hampshire, watched proceedings at the Court of Appeal in London via video link from prison.

Gough, who says it is his human right to be naked in public, remained seated behind a large table as the judges were asked to quash his most recent conviction.

A lawyer representing him in court argued on his behalf that the conviction for breaching an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) - by walking out of prison wearing only his boots and socks - was "unsafe" because he was not permitted to stand trial "not wearing any clothes".

The trial at Winchester Crown Court in October last year was held in his absence. He was found guilty by a jury and sentenced by the trial judge to two-and-a-half years jail.

Gough, now 56, had refused to put on clothes as he left Winchester Prison as he was released from a term of imprisonment for a previous breach of the Asbo, which bans him from appearing in public without clothing. He was arrested outside the prison. Full story...
