Members of a Surrey naturist club have reacted with fury to plans to build a tower block which would overlook their clothes-free sanctuary.

The 70-year-old White House Club, which has 300 members on its books, is objecting in the strong possible terms to the proposed erection of a five story block which would overlook its property.

Habitués fear the possibility of "undesirable elements" moving into the proposed 167-flat development, who might be tempted to spy on White House's nude ping pong tournaments, boules court and early morning skinny dipping sessions, the Mirror Reports.

One member of the Caterham-based club told the paper that she was not ashamed of her body, but "I don't want any Tom, Dick or Harry staring at me from their windows".

The council and the developers told the Daily Mirror the planning inspector had decided there was no problem with "overlooking" the club.

The club itself has an august history, is spread over five acres, and is always open to new members. It points out that its annual fees are much less than a typical sports club. Plus you'll be saving on all that flash sports kit. ®
