After ditching their clothes, the streakers ran 300 meters through the Regent's Park Zoo - some painted from head-to-toe in animal designs.

The runners raised almost £25K that will help the international conservation charity in vital work to monitor and protect tigers in the wild.

James Wren, Fundraising Director at ZSL, said: “Now in its fourth year, the Streak for Tigers has raised more than £165k to date. We’re thrilled to hold such an unusual event, and that so many big cat fans dare to bare all to help us protect tigers.”
