A Fintona man has admitted to sabotaging the paint section in Homebase in Cookstown in case he’s asked to paint more things by his wife if there was another lockdown.
Henry McCague (49) confirmed he destroyed three aisles of paint and painting accessories in the store when no one was looking on Sunday morning after his wife suggested the previous day that another lockdown cannot be ruled out whilst eyeing up another fence.
“Think I’m going to paint another thing this year? Like fcuk I will. I apologise to Homebase for the £45’000 of damage but I’d do it again. Though I do regret threatening to shove a Ronseal Fence Life Brush up that young worker’s posterior. There was no need for that.”
McCague was arrested but released after his wife admitted to winding him up by criticising his previous painting efforts that morning.
Meanwhile, toilet roll firm Andrex have conveyed disappointment that panic buying is not at the same level as earlier in the year and hopes people develop explosive diarrhea as a result.
