So what do you do if you have an urgent craving for a glass of wine but the shops are all closed?
Well one unnamed Russian guy in his late 20’s didn’t hesitate.
First off he stole an armoured personnel carrier from a nearby privately-run motorsport training ground, drove it through a forest and then proceeded to ram it through the window of a “Family” convenience store.
In the process of trying unsuccessfully to turn the vehicle round in the narrow street, he managed to crush a Daewoo car parked nearby.
Footage shared on social media showed the man subsequently exiting the vehicle through its hatch, briefly inspecting the damage, and entering the shop through the broken window.
Local news media, HIBINFORM reported that he had subsequently been arrested in possession of a stolen bottle of wine, adding that the shop was not licensed to sell alcohol that early in the morning.
Well needs must, I guess!
For our BYGONES feature today, Margaret Mills turned her spotlight on FRED MIZON a sculptor of straw from Great Bardfield who had created a large exhibit, known as THE LION and the UNICORN, especially for the FESTIVAL OF BRITAIN, that was staged on the South Bank of the THAMES back in 1951.
You can listen again here to what Margaret had to say on this subject: –
See you again next week,
