Man charged after sunbathing semi-naked

A man sunbathed semi-naked at a busy London market.

The brave man was spotted in Brick Lane, east London setting up a deck chair to catch some rays, wearing nothing but slippers and swimming trunks.

Footage shows the man being marched away in handcuffs by two police officers who appear to tell him they have received complaints from members of the public about his behaviour.

Speaking to the Mirror Online, passerby Craig Jameson said: "We initially thought it was just a performer. But it became apparent that it wasn't - it was just bizarre."

The man was later named as Gerald Muir, and has been charged with being drunk and disorderly.
