Detention for wrong tie pupil
A PUPIL has been put in detention for wearing the wrong type of tie.
Colne Community School in Brightlingsea insists students wear clip-on ties for health and safety reasons.
Max Richmond, 13, says the ties are uncomfortable and childish and prefers to wear a traditional tie, given to him by a neighbour.
