FIFE Council has incurred the wrath of the Glenrothes community and the town’s Nationalist MSP - by secretly moving under cover of darkness a loved dinosaur statue called Rexie.

The move has also prompted the creation of a protest song by local group ‘The Tam Tam Club’. ‘You Rexie Thing’ is sung to the same tune as Hot Chocolate’s 80s chart hit ‘You Sexy Thing’.

Tricia Marwick MSP launched an attack on the council because she had been promised consultation prior to loved Rexie’s removal.

Kevin Sayer, Fife Council’s area services manager, has apologised for the error.
