Mystery Naked Men Spotted Near Cumbria School

Locals in Workington, Cumbria got more than they bargained for on Sunday morning when they were greeted by the sight of four naked blokes, traipsing sheepishly through the town, bollocks cupped firmly in hands.

God only knows what they'd been up to the previous night, but matters were made worse when the group were photographed by passing motorist Kathryn Lynn, whilst making their way past a school sign, covering their bits in shame.

"It was a bit of a shock to see, it isn't something you expect to see when you're driving," Kathryn told the Mail.

"We were driving from Cockermouth to Workington to drop my daughter off at the theatre for a rehearsal for a play that was on that night.

"They were just walking down the bypass and they were on the left-hand side, which is the A66.

"The four of them were walking quite close together, two in front and two behind and were going quickly, as I expect you would do."

Shortly after, with her young daughter safely dropped off at theatre rehearsal, Kathryn seized her moment of opportunity and snapped the blokes as they made their naked way towards the town


"After I dropped my daughter off, we drove back the same way and we saw them again, that's when I took the picture of them.

"I don't know how they ended up there, they were quite serious and probably embarrassed, it could have been a stag-do gone wrong but I just don't know, you'd think if they had been drinking the night before they would be home by now.

"They were holding their tackles and only had their shoes on, it could have been a prank, I just don't know, I've never seen anything like it."

A spokesman for Cumbria Police said they did not have any information relating to the incident.

Just a couple of months ago, rambler Nick Pentecost was left shaken up after his own run in with a mystery naked man in the Welsh hills.

"I was walking to the top of Carn Goedog with no-one around as usual except in the distance I suddenly thought I saw this figure and as I looked closely it turns out I was right," Nick told the Metro.

"To my amazement and shock I realised I was looking at a feral-looking man, hunched over looking at the ground."

Naturally, Mr Pentecost stayed and stared at the naked man a while longer, but eventually got spooked when he was spotted


Mr Pentecost said: "I watched him walking around kind of calmly and sort of aimlessly for about 20 seconds then I think he noticed me and I very quickly turned and sped back down the mountain to my car.

"I looked back to see if he had followed me but didn't see the figure again. Very, very strange."
