Naked nation: why are Britons so keen on public nudity?

Catrin Brooks, a mother of two from Cardiff, was one of the skinny dippers. “It was the most amazing experience. It was just so exhilarating,” she says.

She, like most of the people involved, had never taken her clothes off in public. Her 14-year-old daughter was “mortified” and begged her not to tell any of her friends of her adventure. But Brooks is part of a growing movement of British people who have learnt the liberating joy of stripping off in public – either to raise money for charity, to create an art work, or to make a political point.
