A naked man rescued from inside a supermarket chimney has denied he was trying to burgle the store.
Daniel Davies was found after police heard cries for help coming from the chimney at the Tesco Express store in Ormskirk Road, Wigan. They investigated and called firefighters, who dismantled the chimney breast and found the unemployed 20-year-old naked inside it, Wigan magistrates court heard.
He told police he fell down the chimney while trying to escape some men he owed money.
Whatever happened to pirates and rustlers, gunmen arrested trying to hold up the stagecoach – who bragged about what bad guys they were?
Nowadays, if you’re a crook – you deny it and then whimper for counseling.
