Don’t be like the disgruntled builder who took a digger to a brand new Travelodge when he hadn’t been paid.

Allegedly, the driver was angry about £600 he was owed by contractors. So he drove a mini-digger around the reception area for 20-30 minutes, leaving it completely destroyed. A bystander recorded the incident, and the video went viral.

What this means to you

As will usually happen in these cases, the police are now investigating the matter.
