A fireman accused of bringing disgrace to the service by walking nude across his station yard has been saved from the sack - by his thong.
A senior officer thought Peter Gilbertson, 35, who has received five commendations for bravery, was naked in the yard at Gorton, Manchester.

But at a disciplinary hearing yesterday Mr Gilbertson insisted that he was simply on his way to collect some shower gel, and that his dignity was being protected by a white Calvin Klein thong.

The panel accepted his argument after he produced the thong in evidence. Instead of sacking him, the panel gave him a final warning.

Mr Gilbertson, a fireman for 15 years, apologised for "any embarrassment" he had caused.

"Peter Gilbertson, 35, who has received five commendations for bravery"

So a guy who has five commendations for bravery almost got fired for being naked? I mean even if he was naked what is the issue?
