Naked German women evade Swedish chopper

Naturists fail to see wood for the trees

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Keen Swedish cops deployed a helicopter and sniffer dogs last weekend after three clothes-light German women got lost in the woods.

The naturist trio, aged 40, 50 and 56, set off at 4pm Sunday on a butt-naked jaunt from their holiday cottage by Långasjön lake, outside Karlshamn in the south of the country.

Pals called for assistance when they failed to return, and police mobilised a search operation.

Sadly, they were deprived of the pleasure of recounting over a few beers how their chopper had moved in on the birthday-suited Teutonics, since the wanderers eventually made their own way back to safety at 10:30pm.

They told officers they'd gone astray shortly after departure, and had spent the last hour of their ramble "groping around in the dark". ®
