Schoolboys wear skirts in school protest

Who said skirts are just for girls? A group of schoolboys in Exeter are wearing skirts to school in protest at being told they were not allowed to wear shorts.

The pupils asked permission to modify their uniform because of the hot weather, but the headteacher denied their request.

Some of the young protesters joined us this morning and their spokesperson told us: "I want shorts this year and I’m going to keep wearing it until they give us shorts this year".

The boys also told us about the unforeseen pitfalls of skirt wearing such as: having to shave their legs, being told off by teachers for having their skirt up too high and the annoyance of having their exposed thighs sticking to the chair furniture.
