The year-old, from Derby, was one of 10 trekkers who stripped on Mount Kinabalu on May 30th in a stunt that a local official said was insulting to indigenous people, suggesting it may even be considered the cause of an earthquake that killed 18 people days later. The father of Ms Hawkins has appealed to the authorities not to make an example of her, amid fears for her safety after the prank was blamed for causing a deadly earthquake. She appeared in court on Wednesday with Dylan Snela Dutch tourist, and Lindsey and Danielle Petersentwo Canadian siblings, court sources have confirmed.

A naked man, wearing only a wide-brimmed hat sun smart! This comes after a couple were photographed skinny-dipping in a water fountain at the start of this week in the famous Gaya Street in Kota Kinabalu.

In light of the ridiculous turn of events at Sepang Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend see point 1. Strangely enough, all but one of these incidents involve some level of nudity. But many of these visitors left very little to the imagination; indeed, in one case there was no need for imagination at all….
Whilepeople are fleeing the area near Mount Agung in Bali after volcanic activities that have put the mountain at the highest alert level, some daredevils are instead drawn to the dangerous scene. The opening crater, white smoke, and overall thrill have actually made this active volcano irresistible to some people, including a French tourist who filmed himself on top of the smoking volcano and posted it on Facebook.
