Mayor of Louth's sausage costume to greet Olympic Torch 'looked like a penis'
Yesterday the website (which is the Lincolnshire Echo by other means) returned to the story, quoting Jill Makinson-Sanders, the mayor in question, as saying:
"I didn't dress up for the Torch Relay to be offensive, I just wanted to stick up for the Lincolnshire sausage and I wish the publicity had worked where we needed it to.And there is some good news:
She is now set to appear as the 'Sausage Lady of Louth' at the BIG Tastes of Lincolnshire Sausage Festival at Lincoln Castle on October 27.
Unfortunately she hasn't been able to secure the costume for the event due to short notice but there will be an alternative sausage costume available on the day for her to wear.
Mark Brewer, organiser of the sausage festival said: "Luckily we hire our 'Mr Sausage' costume from the British Pork Executive, which myself and other members of the rotary club take turns in throughout the day.
"Of course Mrs Makinson-Sanders will be welcome to get into it if she wants to."More about the BIG Tastes of Lincolnshire Sausage Festival at Lincoln Castle on Visit Lincolnshire.
