Naked truth

I write in response to your story about a naked man running through a train (4 September).

When my daughter was a
student in Glasgow she set off for lectures one morning, and found herself walking behind two
elderly ladies, chatting happily to each other.

A man coming in the opposite direction flung open his coat as he approached, revealing he was naked.

Without pausing in her walk, one of the ladies quipped: “Aw son! I’ve seen better than that oan a cocktail stick.”

The man shut his coat and
hurried off. The ladies and my daughter continued with their day – giggling.

No polis required, but perhaps the poor chap in the raincoat needed counselling.
