Young at heart and obviously still juvenile when it comes down to falling trousers, I couldn't help but laugh at this.
No apology could be as heartfelt as that offered by Councillor Colin Hall, the major of Leicester, who stood up in front of an audience of schoolchildren and watched .......... his trousers fall down. "I would like to offer my deepest apologies to anyone who was offended," he said, explaining that he'd had forgotten that day to wear a belt. - the Guardian.
Obviously mortified, if the children I worked with are anything to go by these children were more likely to find the whole incident extremely funny rather than offensive. A word to his lordship though - get some trousers that fit or be sure to remember your belt.
