The identity of the woman who posed for a topless photo shoot at one of Belfast’s premiere tourists spots in broad daylight has been revealed.
Hillsborough woman Nadine Poole, caused quite a stir when hikers came across the mother-of-one posing nude at Cave Hill for an x-rated shoot.
According to the Belfast Telegraph the 26-year-old is a glamour model and bodybuilder who made it to the Miss Swimsuit USA contest final in Mexico last year. She declined to comment on the recent photo shoot.
One witness told of how he had been sitting down for a rest at around 2:30pm when he noticed the platinum-blonde Nadine posing at one of the caves.
“I was sitting drinking my juice and eating my Turkish Delight when what caught my eye was this girl with long blonde hair and a bright pink tracksuit and pink shoulder bag,” he said.
“I thought that looks really odd, it’s not the way you would come up Cave Hill. There was a guy behind her, he had a grey bag with what looked like camera equipment.
“They went on up the path, he appeared to be getting his camera equipment out, then she took her gear off.
“She was posing on a rock and all sorts of poses, glamour sort of stuff.
“I couldn’t see any detail from where I was but it was obvious it wasn’t anything tasteful. She climbed up into the cave at one point, legs splayed out.”
The witness said some walkers were so disgusted by what they saw, they turned back.
“I noticed at least three groups of people and a runner, they got half way to the cave, then looked up and walked down again,” he said.
“Even when people were walking up towards them, they didn’t seem in any sort of panic to stop and the girl made no attempt to get her kit back on.
“It was blatantly obvious what was going on.”
Social Development Minister Nelson McCausland has called for Belfast City Council to investigate Nadine’s raunchy shoot, calling it “totally inappropriate and unacceptable behavior”.
Speaking last week, McCausland said: “Cave Hill is a very popular location for walking and many families visit on a regular basis. This is totally inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour for such a location and will have caused offence to many people who will have been in the area.
“I am sure it will be of concern to Belfast City Council and that they will want to make sure that this matter is fully investigated.”
