NEARLY 1,000 years since her first outing, Lady Godiva again rode through the streets in protest. Only this time, Godiva was a man in drag!

And instead of riding through Coventry to protest against unfair taxes, the “good Lady” rode through the village of Halton on Sunday to say no to the M6 link road. “She” was followed by enthusiastic supporters from Halton, Lancaster and Morecambe with banners and placards. Mike Jacob, local committee chair, said: “The proposed bypass will put people at risk and will ultimately lead to the collapse of another English village with a strong sense of community.”
