  Bosses ban lollipop lady's fave hat
Updated 29 September 2003, 16.07
A lollipop lady has been banned from wearing her hat
A lollipop lady in Derbyshire has been banned from wearing her favourite hat, just because she's decorated it with badges.

Some of kids she sees every day even bought her badges back from their holidays to add to her collection.

Audrey Elliot just wanted to liven up her uniform but her bosses at Derbyshire County Council said she can't wear it anymore.

They reckon that the hat means drivers don't treat her as seriously as they should do.

Borrowash, Derbyshire
But people in the village of Borrowash think that's rubbish, and said that drivers and kids think her badge-covered hat is really cool.

Audrey said: "I'm very upset for the children.

"I'm a professional, as we all are who do this job - I love it. I get on well with the kids and parents and they are the ones who are disappointed, as much as I am."
