An elderly woman was arrested in Kensington Hight Street London, England yesterday for malicious vandalism and wanton destruction of private property.
Mrs. Edith Entwhistle explained to police who arrested her:
"This is MY bank. Every letter I get from lloyds tells me it is MY bank. Being as it is MY bank I felt I should paint it in a colour that appeals to Me. Bright pink! Fact is, when I show up with my two grandsons to administer the first underground coat of paint to MY bank, we are arrested. I don't understand. How can they prevent me fixing up MY bank? Surely, they have not tried to deceive me. Or, maybe officer I am... what is that dreadful word... "paranoid?""
Mrs. Entwhistle has been offered free legal aid by Amnesty International to prevent her being sent to prison.
