Agogo? o-no-no Lowestoft mayor admits to a spelling blunder
The mayor of Lowestoft has admitted a sporting spelling blunder after he presented a coat of arms to Lowestoft Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo which got his name wrong.
Eagle-eyed readers of the EDP may have seen in yesterday's paper that Nick Webb handed over a coat of arms to the 23-year-old middleweight at his home town parade on Tuesday afternoon which mistakenly called him Anthony Agogo.
Yesterday Mr Webb held his hands up to the mistake and said a new coat of arms had been ordered which would be presented to Mr Ogogo.
The mayor said: 'It was just an error. I have no idea how it happened. Anthony was aware of it and we had laugh and joke about it afterwards.
'It has been rectified.'
