How Andrew Mennear got his big sock

YOU know when you are watching Match Of The Day and you don’t want to miss a goal but the doorbell goes and you have to run to the door and as you are racing down the stairs to answer it you slip and smash your leg up? No, just Councillor Andrew Mennear, then.

The long-serving Tory came up with this curious answer after being asked why he was hopping around with his leg was in a medical sock at Monday’s full council meeting. There’s nagging question: He’s a Newcastle United fan, whose matches are no longer shown on MOTD due to their dismal relegation last season, so why was he so excited?
