(DAILY MAIL) — A Baptist mayor who refused to judge a pumpkin-carving competition because it ‘glorified Satan’s angels’ has been found guilty of breaching equality rules.

Tom Wilson and his councillor wife Sonja turned down an invitation to judge the event in Nuneaton, Warwickshire because of their religious beliefs.

Councillor Wilson, who stepped down as mayor last May, said at the time that he did not think young people should take part in Halloween because it glamourises evil.
