Naked man trapped in Tesco chimney
From the Manchester Evening News
A naked man who got himself stuck up a chimney has been arrested.
The trapped man's clothes were thought to have been ripped off as he struggled to free himself at the Tesco Express on Ormskirk Road in Pemberton, near Wigan, at 5.30am today. Buy one get one free?
Fire fighters helped him out of the chimney of the closed store.
A police spokesman said: "He was naked and so was taken to hospital as a precaution, but has since been discharged. It is believed some his clothes came off as a result of him struggling to get out of the chimney."
A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and is in police custody being questioned.
Readers of the paper have made the obvious comments about Father Christmas. I am just glad he was arrested on the spot; had he run off the eventual identity parade isn’t one I want to imagine. The latest computer identification process is called VIPER (Video Identification Parade Electronic Recording). That could be even worse.
