There was widespread shock and confusion throughout the greater Newry area as news quickly spread that independent councillor Gavin Malone was seen wearing something other than shorts we can reveal.
The news quickly spread throughout the district leaving some flummoxed and quite frankly upset.
Gavin spoke to us and said:
“I had to wear a pair of trousers for a council meeting. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to my fans for any upset caused by myself not flashing my milky white legs today.
If you’ve been hurt because of my not wearing shorts and you’re over 70 and a woman please PM my page and ill be around tonight with a box of Milk Tray.”
