The Dignity Of The Lord Mayor And Corporation

Leicester's Lord Mayor has apologised after his trousers fell down during an educational event for schoolchildren.

Councillor Colin Hall was at Southfields Library in the city to take part in a Global Education function. When he stood to give a vote of thanks at Tuesday's event his trousers came loose and fell. Children from three local schools were present.

A councillor said: "He was not wearing a belt and the trousers came loose and fell."

A spokesman for Mr Hall said: "The Lord Mayor of Leicester, Councillor Colin Hall, attended a function at a local library yesterday where he suffered an unfortunate problem with his trousers. The Lord Mayor has offered his deepest apologies to those attending the event for any offence caused by the accident."

Mr Hall has enlisted the help of fitness guru Rosemary Conley in a bid to lose weight. He wants to lose up to three stone by next May and is walking to many civic engagements, the council confirmed.
