As Rupert Murdoch's News International admits liability for the News of the World phone-hacking scandal, a local man claims to have been a victim and is seeking compensation.
News International admits there were at least eight victims of the hacking and has put aside £20 million for compensation.
Local "entrepreneur" Vern Anchovy said: "What's that? £20 million? Oh, er yeah - yeah. My solicitors are definitely looking into getting a slice of that, yeah.
"Oh yeah - I've got a well solid case, I have. Oh yeah. Straight up. There was definite noises on my phone when I was in the, er, delicate stages of taking over the garage in Muesli Road - you, know, out by the old airfield. Danny the Mash's old place - rest his soul.
"It was definitely the News of the World. Definitely.
"You sure they said £20 million? Yeah - I'm definitely a victim. Straight up."
