    Lord Mayor of Leicester apologises for trouser drop

    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.

    A spokesman for Mr Hall said: "The lord mayor has offered his deepest apologies to those attending the event for any offence caused by the accident."

    Mr Hall was a guest at a Summer Showcase organised by Global Education Leicester, a network which works with teachers to promote greater understanding of global perspectives, the city council spokesman said.

    Pupils from three local schools were present.

    The spokesman added: "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.

    "He was not wearing a belt and the trousers came loose and fell."

    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.

    This is in no way funny, although poor guy is trying to lose weight and he has to issue a public applogy.

    Oddly enough, I just came back from a call where I was looking for a guy that did the same thing. Of course my guy just got done looking at some porn on the net.

    I trust he doesn't know what suspenders are, either?

    Suspenders are something completely different over here there would have been a massive scandal if he was wearing those

    I guess he doesn't wear braces or suspenders as you crazy yanks call them.

    Whatever. The principle is still the same. Whatever floats your boat. I guess that I should have been more explanatory in my meaning. Elastic straps that are used to hold some type of garment of clothing up to keep from falling down, whether it be pants, stockings or whatnot.

    Leave it to the Brits to get all technical. That would have been a sight if he was using them as a garter belt.

    I like how you think, Capt. Sometimes rebellion is a good thing.

    Now you have me thinking of the movie Robin Hood "Men in Tights" . Tights aka hosiery.

    Maid Marian wore one of those chastity belts in the movie when she married Robin Hood. "It's an Everlast"

    I've always wondered that, myself.

    According to the article here, one stone is about 14 lbs.
