Someone just dropped their trousers in front of Nick Clegg while asking for a selfie

The Lib Dem leader declined.

WITH LESS THAN a week to go until voters go to the polls in the UK general election, things are heating up on the campaign trail.

In fact it’s getting so hot out there that some people are struggling to keep their pants on.

While on the campaign trail in the west Midlands today, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg was approached by a young man who appeared to want a selfie.

But things went horribly wrong when the teenager’s trousers fell down.

Press Association says it is unclear whether the incident was a result of a wardrobe malfunction or part of an attempt to moon the UK deputy prime minister.

Clegg appeared slightly concerned at the whole incident, but thankfully the youth’s modesty was protected by his black boxer shorts.
