Residents in a sleepy village have become embroiled in a bizarre row - over a pair of frilly knickers. The inoffensive underwear was hung out to dry on a washing line by grandmother Rozamund Perrin, 65, who lives opposite a primary school in Stokeinteignhead, Devon. But the pair were promptly whipped off the line by the unnamed resident who then posted them back through her letterbox with an angry, handwritten note.
The knicker nicker, wrote: 'It is total inapropiate (sic) for this type of garment to be displayed opposite the village primary school. 'There are members of this community that would welcome a halting of this.'
An image of the offending knickers - and the accompanying letter - were posted by Ms Perrin's daughter Charlotte Wilkinson on Facebook. In the post a shocked Ms Wilkinson labelled the as-yet unnamed villager a 'prude.'"
