THEY say revenge is a dish best served cold - and our political reporter certainly had that experience when this massive bucket of ice was poured over his head.

Our man had been gleefully nominated by Worcester MP Robin Walker to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, the charitable craze currently sweeping the country.

Chief reporter James Connell wasted no time in giving him an absolute drenching outside our HQ in Hylton Road this morning.

Mr Edwards said: "It was absolutely freezing! James opted for the slow-pour option, which was a bit like putting your head under the river Neretva in December - then leaving it there.

"But I've warmed up already - and my nomination to have a go is Alan Amos, the Mayor of Worcester."
