Dennis Lakass was disappointed to receive only £5.99 in compensation after his recent accident.
This claim for compensation started when he got a text saying "you may be entitled to £1500 for the accident you had."
Mr. Lakass sent details of the little 'accident' he had in his underpants. He also included photographic evidence.
After reviewing all this documentation, the insurance company transferred his case from the small claims section to the 'large stains' section.
"I thought that would mean I would get more money," said Mr. Lakass. "They only offered me £5.99 for replacement underwear. That's the trouble with these accident claim schemes - they stink. And so do my underpants. What with all this form filling and text messages, I haven't had chance to wash them yet."
Apparently Dennis Lakass isn't the only Brummie who does a bummie. Recent customers of a city-centre Indian take-away are putting in a group claim.
