(DAILYMAIL) — A headteacher got his knickers in a twist when a group of boys ditched their trousers for skirts to help beat the heatwave that is currently gripping the country.

The 17-strong group of Year 10 boys at Whitchurch High School in Cardiff raised eyebrows when they emerged from the lavatory in female attire and strode around the school demanding to be allowed to wear shorts.

But the uprising was short lived, and they were promptly marched to headteacher Huw Jones-Williams’ office and firmly ordered to get their trousers back on.
