From THE DAILY RECORD:
Driven mad by an itchy wart, a man decided to remove it himself – and shot off most of the middle finger of his left hand. Sean Murphy used a 12-bore Beretta after creams failed to cure the problem.
But his shotgun surgery landed him in court where, yesterday, he received a 16-week sentence suspended for 18 months for possessing an illegal firearm.
Sean of Doncaster, South Yorks, said: “I’m happy with that. The best thing is the wart has gone. It was giving me a lot of trouble."
COMMENT: Anyone looking for an explanation for this man's actions should concentrate on just one word and enlightenment will come to them. The word is DONCASTER.
