Nick Sick

In a surprise turn of events at the weekend Nick Rhead (29) was sick at the Stag Party of fellow Lichfieldian Dave Hobday. Dave Hobday was said to be ecstatic. Photographic evidence and eyewitness reports suggest that the incident occurred in a `no fly tipping` area. A council spokesperson said they were looking into the allegations, and if any wrong-doing was discovered then charges would be pressed. A £1000 fine is thought to be likely if the case is pursued. When interviewed during the incident Nick only responded with a low groan, and then threatened a photographer. Later in the day Mr Rhead repeated his earlier escapades after being hoist up a tree with a rope and then dropped. Whilst swinging, a nearby attendant gave him a gentle nudge to start him spinning, an act much appreciated by Nick who responded with `Oh great, thanks'. Also during the Stag Eliot Grigg got stuck in a tree and had to be rescued with a ladder. Dave Hobday was said to be ecstatic.

Iron theft on the increase

An iron has gone missing from the house of Edd Hobday. Amateur footage shows a man holding the missing iron, and police have issued a request for any leads.

A police spokeswoman says due to the nature of the crime they are focusing their investigation on impeccably dressed individuals with well pressed clothes and is appealing for any information that may lead to an arrest.

Stag drinks laced with Tabasco

At an incident at Miller & Carters a number of drinks were spiked with Tabasco sauce. Despite Edd's best effort Dave Hobday spotted the lacing attempt and did not drink it.

In an unrelated incident the food order for Mr Rhead was mixed up and the hapless hurler had to wait a considerable time for his food to arrive. Dave Hobday was said to be ecstatic.
