A 36ft-tall effigy of outgoing Fifa president Sepp Blatter will be burned at a town’s annual bonfire celebrations this weekend.

A steel-framed model of the scandal-hit football governing body chief will go up in flames in Edenbridge, Kent.

Bonfire society members said Blatter was the overwhelming choice for this year’s celebrity effigy.
