SAUCY Dorchester students Ellie Glen and Nick Plant stripped to their underwear and raced through the streets of Pamplona, Spain, yesterday.

The Thomas Hardye students, both 18, joined hundreds of animal rights activists in a stunt aimed at providing a more thrilling sight than the town's annual bull run.

Protesters had originally planned a nude dash but were warned by Spanish police that those removing all clothing would face arrest.

Part-time barmaid Ellie is from Affpuddle and Nick is from Milborne St Andrew.

Nick's mum Rosemary Plant said: "I haven't heard from him since the run - they're probably still partying. I'm not sure it's something I would do, but I'm proud of him for standing up for his beliefs."
