Hotseat - Alun Rossiter 

We put the Swindon Speedway boss to the test

SwindonWeb hotseat
Who's in the hotseat? That is the question!

The new regular feature from SwindonWeb, where we put some of Swindon's top personalities on the spot.

Sport stars, singers, councillors and coppers they'll all be put in our infamous flaming chair (bought from Argos for 4.99 and decorated in true Blue Peter style by our very own Team Newsdesk), for a grilling that even Jeremy Paxman would be proud of.

Grill time:
Alun Rossiter
By day he's know to most as the landlord at The New Inn in Stratton, but by night he takes on the role of Swindon's Speedway boss.

But what is his favourite thing about Swindon?

And what was the last lie he told?

Watch our Hot Seat to find the answers to these questions, and more!
