Lord Mayor 'unlikely I used the word sexy' in schoolgirl row

The Lord Mayor of one of our most historic cities has been given an official "telling off" for making an inappropriate remark to a schoolgirl.

Alan Armitage was told his alleged comments brought both the Mayor's office - and Oxford City Council - into disrepute.

He says he doesn't remember using the word "sexy" at a sports prize-giving ceremony but the council says it was "highly probable" he did.

He's been telling Penny Silvester why he should still be Lord Mayor.
