Lincs Echo meets Bruno

It started as a bit of a Skegness silly season story (as I posted on Saturday and Sunday). But interest in Britain's best beach donkey seems to be growing from strength to strength.

Tonight, the Lincolnshire Echo catches up with Bruno on Skegness Beach after he named Britain's champion beach donkey. The Echo runs a full interview.

I should point out that the interview is not actually with Bruno, the real star who beat 980 of his fellow beach donkeys around the country to be named best in Britain, but with his spin-doctor Chris Epton.

Chris, whose grandfather started the family donkey business before the Second World War, reveals that Bruno has been giving children rides on Skegness Beach for, well, donkeys years (as brynley would say in my comments section).

Chris says Bruno is a lovely donkey who "you can have some real fun with".

"This reward is a real feather in our cap so we are very chuffed," Chris told the Echo. "People absolutely love donkeys...they have their own magic."

So let's hear it for Bruno...and for Skeggy of course!

Ask yourself, who's being taken for a ride?

Now it's time to draw a line in the sand.
