LONDON (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has apologized to an English town for failing to keep a date to switch on its Christmas lights.
The actress posted a video on Twitter saying she couldn't attend Thursday's event in Kettering because of "my busy schedule."
Lohan's link to the town 80 miles (130 km) north of London began June 23, the night of Britain's European Union membership referendum. In a series of tweets about the vote across Britain, she posted: "Sorry but Kettering where are you?"
The incident prompted local lawmaker Philip Hollobone to invite Lohan to switch on Kettering's festive lights.
David Cook, Kettering Borough Council chief executive, said local authorities "appreciate how hard she and her team tried to make this work, and we were delighted to get a video message wishing us well."
