TOWN hall bosses have said no to nudity in their family resort after a naked bike ride was branded as just too rude.

Outraged councillors are calling for a clampdown on naked events, which they said could harm tourism in Tendring.

Last month a charity naked swim was staged on Clacton’s West Beach followed by seperately organised naked bike ride around the town on Saturday July 20.

Now Tendring Council leader Peter Halliday wants to put the brakes on further events he is concerned could offend and put off visitors.

“Clacton is a traditional family seaside resort and in my opinion people riding around on bikes with no clothes on does nothing to enhance our image – in fact it harms it,” he said.
