Naked man filmed running through traffic in Swansea

Naked man spotted running on the road around Swansea Prison

Now this is not something you see every day – nor would you want to. Probably.

A motorist had a sizeable shock when driving through the streets of Swansea and happened across a naked man running in the middle of the road.

One of the occupants of the car who filmed the man could be hear uttering: “Only in Swansea!”

The unidentified person, with one hand covering his modesty, was seen running through a red light across Oystermouth Road from the Civic Centre to Paxton Street, with Swansea Prison opposite.

Whether he had escaped and had a change of heart we’ve yet to discover. However the comments underneath the post on X (formerly Twitter) do make for entertaining reading.

One wag reckoned he had been caught in a marina flat by an irate husband, while another posted: ‘I know; straight through a red light!!’

One poster pondered whether he had lost a bet, while one X user was concerned he may have been going over 20mph.

Given his location one person queried: ‘Escaped from the showers in the prison and trying to get back in?’

Another wondered that as the site of the old Vetch Field was nearby maybe he was a time-travelling streaker!

In an attempt to get to the bottom of this Nation Cymru has contacted South Wales Police for further comment.

Looks like the “Oh NO! I’ve overslept and need to be in the office by 8:00. Good job its Dress Down Friday” feeling.
