Police were called to what appeared to be a nudist protest in Oxford city centre.

Eyewitnesses have complained about what they called a pair of nude protesters who were pictured outside Oxford Town Hall on the corner of St Aldate’s and Blue Boar Street on Sunday, June 23 at around 6pm.

Pictures show the pair covered in body paint with leaves drawn on their skin.

It is unclear what the pair allegedly protested, but the Oxford Mail has approached Thames Valley Police for comment.

This is not the first time protesters have taken to the streets in the nude.

In November 2022, a conservationist from Oxfordshire marched through London unclothed and painted as a bird as part of a campaign to support declining species in the UK.
