On today’s holiday edition of the show we heard about the man who is suing his parents for destroying his collection of pornographic films and magazines which he claims was worth over £20,000.
The stash which included titles such as “Frisky Business” and “Big Bad Grannies” comprised 12 boxes of videos and magazines.
It seems that the man took temporary lodging with his parents following a divorce and it was only when he moved out 10 months later that he discovered his missing trophies.
The court papers apparently includes e-mail exchanges with his father in which he wrote that, ”If you had a problem with my belongings, you should have stated that at the time and I would have gone elsewhere. Instead, you choose to keep quiet and behave vindictively.”
In reply his father said, “”Believe it or not, one reason why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional heath. I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine. Someday, I hope you will understand… I did you a big favour by getting rid of all this stuff. We counted twelve moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of sex toys, as you call them. We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so.”
The man’s father added: “I also warned you that if I ever found pornography in my house again, I would destroy it.
The claimant is seeking triple financial damages amounting to more than £66,000 alleging that the destroyed items included “valuable out-of-print films”.
Meanwhile back over here Norfolk police have had their hands full prosecuting a driver found to be more than three times over the drink/drive legal limit, whilst driving a vehicle missing a front tyre!
It’s not clear what happened to cause the loss of the tyre, but the driver was so drunk that he failed to notice it wasn’t there.
What can I say?
See you again tomorrow,
