HENLEY town councillor Stefan Gawrysiak is not one to shy away from speaking.
But he found himself in trouble at a planning committee meeting on Tuesday after an unfortunate mishap with a sausage roll.
Colleagues noticed that he was having difficulty pronouncing some words so Stefan explained that he had a swollen and painful tongue sustained after accidentally biting it while eating at the reception after the previous day’s mayor-making ceremony.
“It makes it difficult to speak,” he said to sniggers from around the room before adding: “I suppose some members hope this goes on for six months!”
