Lithuanians riled by Cameron quip
An off-the-cuff remark by David Cameron at the Arts Council last week appears to have caused a storm in Lithuania.
The Tory leader's comment that he hoped no grants were given to "one-legged Lithuanian dance troupes" has hit the headlines in the Baltic state.
Ambassador Vygaudas Usackas wrote to Mr Cameron saying it had caused "great concern" in his homeland.
The Tories said he had been referring to concerns that grants ended up with unusual causes and meant no offence.
The remark was reported in the Mail On Sunday last week, which said Mr Cameron had been overheard referring to "one-legged Lithuanian lesbians".
Mr Cameron's office later said that was not correct and he had referred to "one-legged Lithuanian dance troupes", to make a serious point about Lottery grants.
