Walkers brought to heel

STAFF from East Lothian Council put their best feet forward - in women's shoes at an event in Haddington.

The fundraisers were taking part in the Walk A Mile in My Shoes event to raise money for the White Ribbon campaign, which aims to enlist men in trying to end violence against women.

Among those taking part was Neil Whettam, pictured with Jimmy MGuinness, who hobbled a mile in stilettos.

The 42-year-old, who trains social workers and lives in Leith, said: "We want to make it easier for people to come forward and we also want to secure the support of men. If a guy says 'I could have just slapped her' we need people to say that is not acceptable."
