Naked man filmed prancing around outside St Dunstan's Church, Canterbury

Extraordinary footage has emerged of a man cavorting naked within feet of an historic Canterbury church.

The film shows a man clutching his clothes in his hands as he runs around the junction of London Road and St Dunstan’s Street in the early hours.

He runs off camera only to return to the pavement outside the 11th century grade 1 listed building to throw all his clothes into the air.

Some four or five other people are heard laughing at the man, who appears to be in his early 20s, before he spends the rest of the film stumbling about naked with arms aloft shrieking wildly.

At one point he hurls a shoe at a member of the group he was with.

The footage was shot by Richard Jones, whose home overlooks the roundabout by the church.

He said he was alerted to the naked man’s presence by noise in the road.

“I heard a lot of banging in the road and looked out of the window to see five people including this naked man coming up the road,” Mr Jones, 46, said.

“It was appalling behaviour in this day and age and indecent exposure is a crime.

“This is worse for the fact that there has been a spate of indecent exposures in Canterbury and that’s why I called it in to police despite the late hour.

“I saw some blue lights about 15 minutes later, but don’t know if they picked anyone up.”

Police say they received a call about the man, but no offences were reported.
