A Platinum Jubilee display of a scarecrow of Queen Elizabeth II sitting on a loo has divided public opinion.

The villagers who live near Aberystwyth in Ceredigion in Wales are unhappy about how the Royal figure has been depicted in a local Platinum Jubilee celebration.

The unusual model of Her Majesty shows her sat next to the roadside sitting on the toilet, with a pair of colourful bloomers around her ankles.

She is joined by a soldier and one of her beloved corgis on the ground, and a banner next to her reads: "70 years on the throne."

Pictures of the tribute attracted joy on social media but Ceredigion Council has branded the display "distasteful" and vowed to have it removed.

On Facebook, users reacted to the prank with a mixture of humour and insult.

A woman said: "Ceredigion, for all your beauty and loveliness, you don't half nauseate me sometimes."

One user wrote: "It should be removed. It's totally classless and doesn't belong there."

Another penned: "Brilliant. It's nice to see Ceredigion isn't caving into this nonsense like Cardiff is."

A fourth addded: "'Fantastic – well done Ceredigion."

Calls have now been made to remove the mystery scarecrow from the area.

A spokeswoman for the Ceredigion Council said: "An unauthorised distasteful tribute display has been arranged on council land in Llanon ahead of the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday. The display shall be removed."

It comes after her Majesty celebrates 70 years on the throne with a 4-day Bank Holiday week filled with activities set to kick off on Thursday (June 2).

A series of major events has been scheduled, beginning with Trooping the Colour and ending on Sunday with a special Pageant celebrating the life of the nation's longest-reigning monarch.

Outdoor parties will also take place on Sunday as part of the Big Jubilee Lunch, while there will be a televised concert on the BBC from Buckingham Palace the day before.
