Passers-by in Stroud were shocked to see a naked man walking along London Road at lunchtime.

The man was spotted on the A419, heading towards the Bowbridge crossroads, just before the Bowbridge Arms.

A pedestrian who has asked to not be named said:  "I said hello and he quickly covered himself and looked shocked – like he’d suddenly come around – but just as quickly, he spaced out again and carried on walking."

The police have been informed and if you have any further information to proffer, then please contact the non-emergency number of 101.
