THE British traveller who walked naked down a street in Bangkok has revealed she was “just doing her own thing” and stripped because she was “hot”.
The 35-year-old caused bafflement after being seen without any clothes near the city’s popular backpacker’s party district Khao San Road.
Footage emerged yesterday of police talking to her and trying to work out why she was nude.
She was eventually given a sarong to cover her modesty.
Speaking yesterday she said: “I’m fine, if you speak to my family let them know, but I’m fine. I’m just doing my own thing.
Explaining why she was running naked in the street, she added: “It’s OK, don’t worry, I was just hot. I’m fine.”
She was taken to hospital for a check-up but was turned away because “it wasn’t urgent”.
Thai police captain Wiroht Kunchai said the Brit was being looked after.
He said: “She said she was hot and she apologised for causing problems.
“We took her to hospital at midnight but they would not take her in because it was not urgent and they said come back in the morning. She is feeling much better now.
“We stayed with her all night to make sure she didn’t run away again. She was friendly and said she is fine, she is a very nice person and was very friendly.
“We have taken her to hospital again for them to assess her. She told them she is OK, but she is staying there and waiting for the British embassy to come and see her.”
