HAMPSHIRE’S crime commissioner Simon Hayes says it is unlikely police will impose restrictions on Portsmouth’s naked cycle ride.

The event, taking place in Southsea today, has been criticised by Tory councillor Luke Stubbs. He wrote to Mr Hayes, calling on him to stop riders going through residential areas, and fears the occasion is just an excuse for ‘public exhibitionism’. But Mr Hayes told The News: ‘I can’t impose any restrictions, but the police can if it’s felt the event will commit an offence under the public order act.

‘The police don’t feel it is.’
