Hope this helps.

Sorry you had to be exposed to such......makes a bad impression of us.

Anne58 Wed 27-Mar-13 23:27:29

Envious let's not go down that route, as there are many British things that should have never been inflicted on anyone.

Mind you, I think that there is an apology long overdue for Little Jimmy Osmond.

I was in London when streaking was common and was eating my lunch by the Thames and a streaker shot past.
I don't know if he was caught or any action taken.

Was streaking ever common? It happened occasionally at a cricket match (Lord's?) and the odd football match. I lived in London for nearly 60 years and never saw a streaker in a department store, supermarket, local park, on the school run, in a tube train or any of the places where people commonly went.

I am not saying it was common in London.
Common in the sense it was happening a lot more over the country.
That was the only streaker I saw except on TV.
It was behind some offices in either Upper or Lower Themes street where bank workers went to eat their lunch in summer.
I never heard any news reports about it so it may never have been reported to the police.
I do remember a news report about a streaker in a supermarket but I can not remember where.
I can remember a report about a female streaker at a tennis march.

I used to teach with a chap whose sister was the streaker at, I think Lord's (or was it a rugby match?) I think her name was Erica Rowe. Anybody remember?

gracesmum Thu 28-Mar-13 15:09:58

Just googled and find it is spelt Erica Roe and it was Twickers!

NfkDumpling Thu 28-Mar-13 15:31:19

Streaking never happened around here - the cutting east wind rather discourages it perhaps - any bloke trying to streak would have little to show for it.

gracesmum Thu 28-Mar-13 15:33:58

grin - very little!! grin

Erica Roe, she was a very buxom young lady. I remember the male streaker who had his bits covered up by a bobby`s helmet. I often wondered how the bobby felt at having to wear the helmet afterwards!

annodomini Thu 28-Mar-13 16:15:44

Erica was the first to hit the headlines. She certainly set a trend - wonder where she is now. Probably a gran! Hello, Erica, are you out there?

harrigran Thu 28-Mar-13 22:16:50

I never saw a streaker where I live either, way too cold up north grin
