Hebden Royd Town Council in West Yorkshire has told the organisers of a local burlesque festival that it cannot hold a show in the Hebden Bridge Picture House. The committee decided that it was demeaning to women, so it wasn't suitable for the venue.

The decision has prompted a local row. And it's not the first time a decision which made sense to a council has seemed odder to the outside world.
