There's not much room in them subs

A man who watched a movie about a World War II submarine and its crew, has revealed how he started to feel claustraphobic, and had trouble breathing, at certain points in the film.

Moys Kenwood, 55, purchased a 2-DVD copy of Wolfgang Petersen's classic 'Das Boot' from the Dove House charity shop in Hornsea in September of this year, for the seabed-low price of £1.

When he took the first disc out of its case last Sunday, he experienced an intense feeling of unease, and sat down in a chair for a few minutes, before, finally, setting the film in motion.

Within minutes, he reports sensing "a great dread" in his living room, that the walls of the room had started to move inwards, and experiencing an overwhelming fear as if "something terrible was going to happen".

He says he imagined there was an enormous, crushing pressure across his chest, and he began to sweat profusely, and to gasp for air.

He had never before suffered from breathing difficulties, and recovered after the film had ended, but, knowing that it's 'better to be safe than sorry', he went to see his doctor about the ordeal.

His doctor told us later:

"He's round the bends!"
