A town council has taken delivery of a coat of arms costing almost £10,000 which it says it has no use for.
The Letchworth Garden City Council was contacted by the College of Arms about a coat of arms, which they had ordered and paid a pretty penny for, that was ready but for which no one had made arrangements to collect. This apparently came as a big surprise to the council members, since no one can find the paperwork authorizing the expenditure (£9,975, or about US$17,000).
It doesn't help that the council is expected to be abolished in the next four years.
