Police in Sri Lanka have arrested the reigning Mrs World after an onstage melee.

A mother has lashed out at the “idiot” who called the police because she and some friends had dressed as dinosaurs to entertain their kids.

He then reported them to the police. “We had no choice but to leave because we didn’t want to risk getting arrested, although watching the police chase six dinosaurs would have been funny,” said Clarkson.
