Llandovery townsfolk bleat about Royal jokers!

A STORM has erupted in Llandovery over cut-outs depicting the Royal Family as a flock of sheep.
Some shops are displaying the cutouts of sheep - with faces of the Royals stuck on - to advertise Llandovery’s Sheep Festival this weekend.
But former Llandovery town clerk Terry Leyman said some people felt it was in “baaaa-d taste” and revealed he had raised the matter with Trading Standards and Dyfed-Powys Police.
“I’m speaking up on behalf of residents,” he said. “Everyone I’ve spoken to think the fact the Royal Family are being portrayed as a flock of sheep is absolutely disgusting.”
But newsagent Martin Davies said his customers regarded the cut-outs as an amusing way to advertise an important event in the town.
“I don’t think it’s treasonable,” he joked.
