Naked theatre group arrested
Street theatre actors were torn off a strip by police after they mingled naked with crowds at a music festival.
The Deuxime Groupe D'intervention performers had been invited from France to take part in Poland's Malta Festival in Poznan.
But the group, whose motto is 'Wake Up Your Sensitive Parts, ignored the stage and stripped naked as they mingled with festival-goers waiting for bands like Portishead and Fleet Foxes to start playing.
Police threw the entire cast in the cells on public indecency charges after shocked concert goers dialed 999.
"We didn't know they were performers. There was no stage or acting as such. We just thought they were very kinky nutcases," said one witness.
A police spokesman confirmed: "A group was detained for lewd conduct in a public place."
