Bizarre moment naked man legs it down street as three cops chase after him

This is the moment a naked man legged it down a high street as police officers chased in hot pursuit.

Ross Springham, 29, was spotted in his birthday suit in Notting Hill, west London in the early hours of Sunday morning (February 21).

Worried residents called police but when officers arrived, he started running away.

Footage shows three cops desperately trying to catch the nude suspect as he darts past shops and businesses with no clothes on whatsoever.

He screams something inaudible before crossing the street and darting out of shot.

Springham was eventually arrested by police and taken to a police station in central London after being checked over by paramedics, Scotland Yard said.

The man was first seen walking along the busy main road of Westway, police said.

Delivery cyclist Pedro Lula, 39, captured the bizarre scenes on camera near Queensway – a busy shopping street in west London close to Kensington Palace.

“I was out making a delivery on my bike when I looked up and a naked man ran past,” she recalled.

“I was checking an address on my phone and just started filming.”

Springham appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court’ on Monday (February 22) charged with indecent exposure.
