New lease of life for Brian

Councillors at Swansea yesterday agreed to lift a 17-year ban on the Monty Python film The Life of Brian.

They decided that the movie - a spoof on the Jesus Christ story and condemned as blasphemous by some Church leaders when it was first released - could be screened in the city in aid of Comic Relief next month.

In 1980 councillors voted 22-15 to refuse the film a licence.
