Naked rambler Stephen Gough has been arrested in Fife just days after being released from prison. He had spent more than six years in jail after being repeatedly re-arrested outside the prison gates when he refused to wear clothes. He was allowed to go free from Perth Prison on Tuesday and not re-arrested, in an apparent change of policy. However, Mr Gough was arrested over a breach of the peace near Dunfermline.
John Good, Edinburgh based lawyer, who represented Mr Gough for about five years, told Today presenter Justin Webb that he is "an incredibly ordinary man".
He explained that the so-called naked rambler's motive for refusing to wear clothes began during a particularly "difficult event" in his life but has now "become part of his ideology". Mr Good added that in prison, he was often "harshly" placed in solitary confinement for being naked.
