Go here...

Then go to BBC News: Video and Audio (on the right-hand side) and click on "Man stuck in gorse bush…"

The video's a bit crap, but it's quite funny.

My internet filters at work preclude me from viewing the video but I suspect that it contains a good cheap laugh at this poor chap's predicament

Read it in the paper last night - PMSL

It does, Marina. He was there for TWO DAYS and had to be rescued by helicopter...!!

Ouch. hope the family jewels were not compromised.
My family still likes a collective chuckle at my toppling backwards into a nettle patch while having an al fresco wee at age four. My mother was supposed to be holding on to me FFS .

Have they worked out yet, how on earth he got IN there in the first place?

it was on the regional news last night; the reporters seemed to find it quite entertaining, and not a little bizarre!

He was quite obviousl Veary Veary drunk and decided to urm, relief himself, don't you think?

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, is he?

TinyGang Wed 10-Aug-05 10:55:23

Lol Er...no, Janh. I would agree with you there!

Milge Wed 10-Aug-05 10:56:42

a slight understatement there i think Janh!

I see, the reporter said something about him looking for his mountain bike, but she did seem a bit baffled by that as an explanation!

He'd gone to the caravan park to play on the fruit machines, then wandered off into the gorse bushes. Inebriated as a newt, I think. Incomprehensible in the interview.

Hehehe - reminds of the time I needed a 'comfort stop' and then toppled down the side of Cheddar Gorge!!! Luckily, dh was there to rescue me, but it didn't do my tights any good at all.

Did he find his bike?? lol

The more I think about this the more I chortle - he was there for 2 days and then someone spotted the flame of his cig lighter?????? (Lucky he didn't set fire to the gorse if the flame was big enough to spot!) Didn't he shout?
