Mum and kids shocked to see naked elderly man along ramblers path in Sandwich

An elderly man gave a mum and two children a shock when he was spotted walking along a path in Sandwich completely naked.

The mum, who wished to remain anonymous, was with her 12-year-old daughter and her friend, when they saw the nudist on the ramblers path between the Quay and Sandwich Bay.

She posted details of yesterday's encounter on Facebook and was told there could be a valid reason he was there.

She said: “It was suggested on the thread that there may be a naturist beach at Sandwich Bay, but there was some dispute over this.

“I didn’t report it to the police as the man was not threatening in any way, just minding his own business. It is inappropriate on a public footpath though.

“Although I appreciate naturists have as much right to enjoy the sunshine as anyone else, I’d rather not expose my daughter and her friends to the naked bodies of unknown men and would avoid this path if I’d known.”

Other residents commented that indecent exposure is not acceptable in a public place despite the man being non-threatening.
