Parton my delay

Country and western superstar Dolly Parton has infuriated a group of English local councillors by forcing them to delay their regular meeting when she visits this week.

Parton is travelling to Rotherham in South Yorkshire to launch her children's literacy programme, Imagination Library.

But some independent and Conservative councillors are outraged that Parton's visit will mean they have to delay by one hour a full meeting of Rotherham borough council so civic leaders can meet her.
