A vile Yorkshire clamper called Ted Evans has stepped up his efforts
to trick people out of hundreds of pounds, by clamping their cars in
the village of Haworth. The police say they will not get involved

He uses every trick in the book to confuse people, including using
parking spaces that are too small to get a car into, and a ticket

off and leaving the bits in a big pile until he gets bored with buying

suing for "trespass of the goods" or anything else the laywer can think of.
Hint: you want a tenacious lawyer, not someone who does 99% conveyancing and

That's the one.
Squirt some water into the exhaust then cut the top and bottom off a
tube of expanding foam adhesive and ram it in. You will need five
minutes or so for the effect to initiate. Half an hour would be best.
Repeat as necessary.
Wear gloves of course.
Nice stuff, had a test tube with rather a lot in in a locker, opened the
door one day to find it had changed state and the inside of the locker
was an interesting yellowish brown colour. Glad I wasn't around when it

Strangely enough, the top of the jam jar remained intact
