A Reading man is to face the possibility of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order from the courts after he admitted slashing the tyres of his neighbour. In mitigation David Chandler, the defendant in the case, explained that he was inspired to carry out his crime against rubber when he heard derogatory remarks about noises he made in his sleep through the same permeable wall that allowed his heavy breathing to disturb his next-door neighbour. Enraged by this slight, he took his anger out on Jacques Cilliers’ vehicle, leaving the latter needing to visit his local dealer post-haste. Chandler is yet to receive sentencing.

As deer mating season continues in full swing, a buck burst into the Fort Hill outlet looking for love, but finding only tyres.
