Parents were shocked when two 12-year-old girls put on the show at the Crockenhill Primary School Fete last weekend.

One parent complained that pole dancing was not suitable for youngsters and the clothing was inappropriate.

Cat Ledbetter, the owner of Revolutions Pole Academy based who took part in the eight-minute display, told Julia Hartley-Brewer that pole dancing is not inappropriate for children and is similar to gymnastics.

Ms Ledbetter insisted that the hotpants and leggings were appropriate for the display, where they performed to The Lion King, Frozen and Bonnie Tyler.
