Alex Salmond makes light of burning effigy plan

Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond laughed off an East Sussex town's plan to burn his effigy on bonfire night

The town of Lewes was due to burn two models of Mr Salmond in its annual bonfire celebrations - one of which also featured the Loch Ness Monster

Mr Salmond said he was "used to insults from Tories in East Sussex" but was worried on behalf of a "defenceless animal".
