Update: More more thing.
Statement from the LAMA Awards:
Zurich LAMA Awards wish to issue a statement vehemently denying any involvement in yesterday’s disturbances on the M50, involving a loose herd of llamas. Hannah Bates, Event Executive for the awards says “there will be no awards given out to any llamas, at the Red Cow Roundabout, or indeed anywhere else today. The awards are solely for the Local Authority Members Association and local developments and no matter what stunt these llamas pull, they will not be included in the awards ceremony”
