The West Yorkshire town's new mayoress has made an impact on her first day in charge - by turning out to receive her chain and gown in fishnet stockings and knee-high boots.
Angela Johnson, now the mayoress of Luddenden, was formerly the minister for discipline on the village committee and vowed to make a real difference, adding that she was taking the role seriously even though the hosiery
was a little different to the norm.
She said of her legwear
-centric get-up: "I know most people wouldn't dream of wearing these clothes outside their own bedroom but as an ex-minister for discipline I thought I should dress up for the day."
The Luddenden website noted that each year, the village elects the mayor for fundraising duties to benefit charities around the UK.
