Police chased off a naked man throwing rocks at swans at 3am this morning as temperatures in Plymouth dropped to freezing.

Officers were called to a muddy slipway near the China House by residents disturbed by a group of noisy revellers.

Police say a naked man was throwing rocks or stones at swans on the waterfront.

The group moved on when the police arrived, but officers were unable to catch the naked individual.

Police say they were called by residents but they are unable to explain why anyone would strip naked on a muddy beach at 3am in November.

It does not appear the swans were injured.

    whats it going to be next with people like this? I have seen people before in my local park hurling stuff at swans and using generally threatening behavior to swans in parks near ponds and its always group yobs. they say people are just clones of their parents. you would have to be pretty sick to hurt a helpless swan. Police need to be aggressive with people who try and harm wildlife in this way.

    Maybe he was just confused when someone suggested he got his rocks off? So a bloke presumably has a few too many to drink and strips of. First place I'd start looking for this guy is the Royal Marines or Royal Navy!

    Police chased him off why did they not arrest him? What are they paid for if not to uphold the law?

    they should of rang the rspb as they would of taken this more seriously!. obviously cops couldn't catch the naked yob as nothing too grab hold of! but they should of concentrated on the clothed ones!

    That had to be one hell of a scene to witness. Shame he wasn't nibbled on if you know what I mean, though in those temperatures it would've been rather difficult to get a grip!

    Obviously, the bright spark behind this was on the strong wine gums and missed his mummy calling him in for his tea!
