"Chill wind blows though naturists' ranks as row splits world of nudism"

Divisions began to appear in naturism’s international organisation after Mrs Ivo was accused of not doing enough to promote the benefits of naturism and failing to extol its virtues to the wider public.

Worse still, she was accused of spending more than £80,000 move INF’s offices from its longstanding headquarters in Belgium to an office close to her home in the small Austrian town of Horsching, and staffing it with members of her own family.

That led to angry scenes at the World Congress of the INF, held in New Zealand last November, when delegates from the body’s national federations - including Britain - voted by a narrow majority to strip Mrs Ivo of the presidency.
