London: A British man who has spent most of the past decade naked and in jail is back behind bars after defying an order to cover up.

Stephen Gough, known as the "Naked Rambler," was arrested on Thursday as he left a court in Southampton, southern England, wearing only boots, socks and a knapsack.

A judge had just imposed an order that he must "wear sufficient clothing in public."

The 54-year-old former Royal Marine appeared at the same court today, and was ordered detained until a hearing on March 25.



Since 2003 Gough has completed two naked walks the length of Britain, with frequent interruptions for arrests, court appearances and jail time.

He has said he believes nudity is a human right.
