How sweet! Only in Blighty can one witness a punch-up between two rival ice cream sellers as they battle for pitches under the blazing Solero.
A fracas which began with raised voices and knockdown prices and ended with knocked out dents and a smashed up window as one van is driven at speed into the back of the other.
The two men and vans then driving off to mop up their spilt milk.
The fight between Mr ‘Mulla’ Whippy and Mr ‘Ramzan’ Yummy (obviously both of Asian decent) was captured on video by a local resident who heard two men swearing profusely in front of their young customers.
Eyewitnesses report that the two men were clearly fighting for the same pitch on the same street and this resulted in considerable damage to Ramzan’s van.
Just what ‘whipped up’ the two men’s ‘iced’ anger, what resulted in their ‘meltdown’ and why they had to do it publicly in front of ‘hundreds and thousands’ is being investigated by Blackburn police.
Meanwhile this report has to end abruptly due to a worldwide shortage of puns.
