A 20ft effigy of Home Secretary Charles Clarke was the centre-piece of the Lewes bonfire celebrations in Sussex, which attracted over 65,000 people.

Monday's edition of the Sussex-wide daily 'The Argus' had a front page picture of the effigy of Clarke, holding the scales of justice in one hand and an ID stamp in the other.

The effigy of Charles Clarke was made by the Cliffe Bonfire Society, which, according to The Argus, "chose the minister as its public enemy number one because of the Government's proposals to introduce ID cards."
