Nude Shop Flop Blamed on Rooney
- Small turn out on Oxford Street reveals little

SIXTEEN people waited for a bus last night at a stop just south of Trafalgar Square.

Not one for the record books to be sure, but the total of thumb-twiddlers was one more than showed up for the inaugural Nude Shopping Night on Oxford Street.

"We were actually hoping for more but it is the first event we have run and the football cut numbers down," said Oona Graham-Taylor, of the Plaza Centre on Oxford Street where the event was held.

Not surprisingly, Graham-Taylor would only say it was "possible" that future similar events would go ahead, presumably not on nights that Wayne Rooney was on telly.

To be fair, as well as the England-Croatia match, naturists might complain that the shops involved didn't really enter into the swing of things. Shop staff were fully clothed and all nude shoppers had to register before being allowed into the Plaza like naughty school kids.
