Police shot a 48-year-old man with a Taser gun after he threatened to use petrol to blow up his home.Don't they worry about sparks?
Father-of-two Carl Mountford barricaded himself in to a bedroom after accusing his wife of 29 years of having an affair.And was the weeping lady of the house waiting for police to resolve the matter?
It later emerged that his wife Adele Tunstall – who was out playing bingo at the time of the siege – was not having an affair.It really is just like 'Jeremy Kyle', isn't it?
Now the couple's marriage is 'back on track' – although Mrs Tunstall has warned her hubby to stay off alcohol.I'm shocked, shocked, to find alcohol was involved... Comment of the month, though:

“I'm glad they worked things out and this has a happy ending. It would have been a shame to throw away such a wonderful relationship over a very small silly misunderstanding involving drink, petrol, a machete and armed police.
It's a warm Valentine's Day story from fegg Hayes”*chuckles*
