    They're off in Nude-castle

    Around 1,500 volunteers stripped naked and walked the streets of Newcastle and Gateshead in the name of art.

    American artist Spencer Tunick cordoned off a section of the quaysides to create his latest piece of nude art.

    Volunteers, including Tunick fans who follow his work around the world, pre-registered for the event from Australia, Belgium and Peru.

    From dawn, people gathered by the Baltic Gallery in Gateshead, before stripping off in the car park.

    They were marshalled into different poses using a loud speaker, at five locations on both sides of the River Tyne.

    Mr Tunick said: "I needed 1,500 people to make this installation work... I got everything I needed and more."

    It may have been beautiful, (at least 50% of it), but was it art?
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
