A report from the City of London Corporation in response to calls to enlarge the men's nude sunbathing area on Hampstead Heath will reportedly crush naturist hopes for room to swing a sunbed at the men's bathing pond. The report will be presented today at the management committee's meeting and campaigners are urging supporters to attend and pooh pooh the anticipated decision that will keep nude sunbathers squished together in the 13m by 8m concrete enclosure, surrounded by metal sheets. Lead campaigner Michael Peacock say it's "akin to being in a microwave on a hot day". The Corporation argues the ponds are primarily for swimming. After wide consultation with swimming groups, they are recommending that the expansion not be approved.
