Plymouth City Council has told its staff they should not turn up for work wearing flip flops in the current heatwave. A memo to staff said:

"It's fine being cool in the office, but please remember this is a business environment and we expect people to wear appropriate clothing."We shouldn't be showing too much flesh and flip flops are a definite no-no !"As in any professional organisation staff need to dress appropriately."
