WRONG-DOERS have been given a stay of execution due to harsh weather warnings.

The Saints and Sinners event, raising cash for the Mayor’s charity, has been postponed to a future date yet to be confirmed.

Organiser Katie Skingle, on behalf of the Mayor’s Charity Fund, apologised for the postponement.
