A Scottish cancer charity has hired a double-decker bus covered with an image of a naked man in a bid to raise awareness of its work.

Ucan, which provides support for urological cancer sufferers, has spent £1,500 on hiring the bus. It will tour the outer regions of north-east Scotland to spread its message to communities the charity says are difficult to reach.

Transport firm First, which owns the bus, has allowed the charity to advertise on the vehicle for free.

Kate Synott, fundraising manager at the charity, said the design was supposed to be an eye-catching way to convey a serious message about cancer.

In May this year, the charity ran a fundraising campaign called Pants Walk, in which supporters made underpants from newspapers, tin foil, bubblewrap and bin liners and wore them on a walk through a park in Aberdeen.
