Butcher creates purple sausages in honour of Prince

A butcher has created purple sausages in honour of Prince.

The 'Purple Rain' hitmaker may have been a strong vegan but his die-hard fan Paul Kenyon thought the best way to celebrate his life is by creating colourful bangers, using food dye, and displaying them in his shop window for all to see.

He said: "It's a traditional pork sausage with purple food colouring ... I think Prince would have liked it."

But Mr. Kenyon's gesture has somewhat backfired as he's been slammed by animal right's group PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) for the insensitive creation.

The organisation sent the proud butcher, who runs Palace Premier Meats in Paignton, Devon, a letter suggesting he should apologise for his lack of sympathy and should try and make amends by making some meat-free purple sausages.
