It’s a “MAXIMUM MUSIC” Monday!

On today’s “music packed” edition of the show we reported on a strange incident on a train involving allegedly smelly eggs.

Now I’ll be honest with you but I’m frankly amazed that this incident ever found it’s way to the courts, especially since it was apparently felt necessary to involve a jury.

Be that as it may but Samantha Mead from Manningtree was been fined £1500 after she reportedly shouted at fellow passenger, Erika Stoter whose hard boiled eggs were exuding an unpleasant smell on an early morning commuter train from Chelmsford to Liverpool Street,

 Mrs Mead was accused of putting on a “bad face” – whatever that is –  when Erika Stoter opened a Tupperware box containing the eggs.

Indeed M/s Stoter freely admitted that the eggs did give off a strong pong. 

In fact another passenger had previously complained about the smell!

When M/Stoter started eating the egg, Mrs Mead apparently threw her “bad looks” and moved towards the doors, presumably to try to escape the pong, but then quickly and aggressively moved towards her and “leant into her face” and, it has been claimed, asked if she “wanted to go outside” – a bit tricky on a train I would have thought.

M/s Stoter then suggested that Mrs Mead was a bit old to be acting in this way.

On arrival at Liverpool Street, M/s Stoter, who said she felt ”intimidated and vulnerable”, reported the incident to police, but by this time Mrs Mead had already left the train, only to be spotted by M/s Stoter alighting from the same train 4 days later.

This resulted in Mrs Mead being hauled in for questioning by officers.

Mrs Mead told the court she had been taking tablets for a medical condition and that the smell of the eggs made her nauseous, whilst M/s Stoter said she had to eat the eggs on the early train because of her diet.

The jury subsequently found Mrs Mead guilty of “intentionally causing harassment, alarm or distress” and so was fined £750 and ordered to pay £750 in compensation.

In the second hour of today’s show we heard how wild boar are believed to be responsible for digging up and destroying a €20,000 stash of cocaine hidden by drug dealers in a forest in Tuscany.

After sniffing out the cocaine, buried in the woods near Montepulciano, the wild boar managed to rip open the water-proofed packages before scattering and trampling the drugs into the forest floor.

The unconventional drugs bust was discovered when police wiretapped suspected drug traffickers – an Italian and three Albanians – and heard the furious drug traffickers complaining about the damage to their woodland stash.

The drug reportedly came from the nearby city of Perugia before being hidden and peddled around the eastern Tuscan city of Arezzo and further afield.

The gang had reportedly sold two kilos of cocaine in a month before being busted.

It is not known whether the cocaine had any effect on the wild boar!

See you again tomorrow,
