Naked Sunbather Near Railway Line Triggers Dead Body Hunt

By Gary Cutlack on at

A man has reached new levels of feeling silly this week, after his spot of naked sunbathing led to police being called because observers were concerned they'd discovered a dead body.

He didn't do himself any favours by sunbathing near a railway line, almost as if he wanted essential workers to give his genitals a once over from a safe distance. Transport staff notified the local transport police department, who attended the... scene. The police said: "Railway workers could only see a pair of feet but reported no signs of life. Rushing to the scene officers found a man in his late 30s enjoying some nude sunbathing. Please don't sunbathe nude on the railway!"

They added that the man was indeed within the railway land boundary, but made no mention of him actually being done for trespassing or anything else. [Twitter via BBC]
