Four naked protesters have been arrested after demonstrating against a nudity ban in San Francisco.

Around a dozen people in various states of undress took to the streets as part of the protest on Friday, as the city's prohibition on going out in the buff took effect.

Only those who were fully nude were taken into custody.

A federal judge ruled this week that nudity was not protected free speech and upheld San Francisco's ban on most displays of public nudity

The Board of Supervisors voted 7-4 in favour of the ban last December.

Activists challenging the measure had argued that the ordinance was unfair because it grants exceptions for nudity at permitted public events such as the city's gay pride parade.
