If you glance upwards as you stroll through the streets of East London, this might just be the sight that greets you. A completely naked woman perched on a rooftop for four hours yesterday, in what doesn’t look like a particularly comfortable position.It turns out she’s an artist, and the stunt is part of an exhibition. But let’s be honest, it wasn’t the warmest day yesterday, so Poppy Jackson is clearly dedicated to her work.

Witness Raquel Rodrigues told the Evening Standard: ‘I don’t know how she got away with it – if I was walking around naked I’d be arrested. ‘There are lots of businesses around, people were having a peek and then going back to work.’
The artist’s website says she ‘makes actionist work exploring the female body as an autonomous zone’.
Not everyone seems impressed with the concept though:
