Officers from Derbyshire Police have fined a man after they found him sitting naked in his car without a reasonable excuse.
The male explained to officers that he had taken a number of wrong turnings after setting off from his home address to find some wet wipes.
Not satisfied that the male was making an ‘essential’ journey, he was hit with a fixed penalty notice.
Speaking about the bizarre encounter via their Facebook page, a spokesperson for the force said:
“Naked man found messing in a Mazda”.
“Naturally, officers challenged the nude male, asking him why he was in a closed car park,” they wrote.
“However, the male was unable to provide a reasonable excuse of why he was stark naked in the car park during the height of a national lockdown.”
The man was discovered by the Melbourne and Mercia Safer Neighbourhood Team, in a car park near Calke.
Officers confirmed that the male did not have any mental health problems.
The male was also given a Community Protection Notice regarding his lack of clothes.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?

How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
