13 year old cornet prodigy Peter Pecton has parted company with the Bingley Scouts Band. The band recently welcomed back former principal cornet star Reece Tainterbridge and there were rumours that Pecton's days may be numbered.
Band chairman Laurence Fishburn said, "Sadly, Peter has found it increasingly difficult to balance the band's schedule with his studies. Either that or his parents have bought him a dog that needs walking every evening. Something like that. We definitely haven't sacked him. No. No way. He's not been sacked just because Reece has come back to the band. No. Not sacked".
When we contacted Pecton he was in the bath, but his mum said, "The fuckers have sacked him".
