Effigy: David Cameron @MattyJam92
A huge effigy of a scantily clad David Cameron holding a pig's head is due to be burned at Bonfire Night celebrations in Lewes.
The Guy, which will be set alight in the Sussex town on Thursday night, also features a small fox climbing up the prime minister’s leg while he sits on a gold throne wearing just Union flag underpants.
The statue references claims published last month that the Prime Minister put “a private part of his anatomy” into a dead pig’s mouth while he was a student at Oxford University.
A second effigy of Fifa president Sepp Blatter is also due to be burned as part of the town's Guy Fawkes Night celebrations.
The football boss is currently suspended from his role while he is being investigated over corruption allegations.
Lewes has a long history of burning controversial effigies.
Other past effigies have included Russian president Vladimir Putin, North Korean leader King Jong Un, and Libya's former leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

A model of Pope Paul V - the head of the Catholic church at the time of the Gunpowder Plot - is also burned every year.
It is also not the first time Cameron has featured in the celebrations. In November 2010, after the coalition government had been formed, an effigy of David Cameron operating a puppet-like Nick Clegg was burned.
