SHOCKED football fans got more than they bargained for at Gigg Lane on Saturday when a male streaker charged on to the pitch during Bury’s home game against local rivals Rochdale.

The naked fan only made it a couple of yards on to the pitch when he was tackled by a female steward, who grabbed hold of him by the neck and led him away.

The man’s modesty was then covered up and he was carted off by police.

Rochdale fan, Jan Harwood, said: “He was the worst streaker ever.

“It was hilarious, but I felt a bit sorry for him. It was a very cold day.”

Luckily, the incident did not affect Bury, who went on to beat promotion rivals Rochdale 2-1.
