More jail time for naked rambler

Naked Rambler
Gough has spent most of the past two-and-a-half years behind bars

A man known as the naked rambler has been jailed for 12 months after being convicted of a breach of the peace.

Stephen Gough, 49, was brought into the dock at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday wearing no clothes or shoes.

He was arrested at the same court last month after attempting to leave the building naked, following an acquittal for breach of the peace.

The former marine, from Eastleigh in Hampshire, has twice walked naked from Land's End to John O'Groats.

During his appearance, Gough told the court that if members of the public were offended by his nakedness then the problem was with them and not with him.

He has spent most of the past two-and-a-half years in prison at an estimated cost to the taxpayer of more than 200,000.
