A computer is a valuable and important piece of equipment, and needs care and attention, so when one man noticed a hairline crack on his screen this week, he wasn't best pleased.
Moys Kenwood, 55, saw the inch-long crack as soon as he opened the laptop up, and, knowing he could not possibly be responsible himself, cast a detective's eye over other suspects in the property.
Immediate suspicion fell upon those closest to him.
His wife denied any knowledge of the damage, and her denial was relatively convincing.
His daughter, 4, was a different proposition altogether. From the start, she looked nervous, although she had no discernible motive.
His son, 2, laughed, giggled, and chortled all the way through his grilling, as if he couldn't have cared less who'd knackered his dad's 12-year-old computer.
All avenues of inquiry having been exhausted, Kenwood was faced with the troubling prospect that he might just have been a tiny bit responsible for the crack, after he remembered having moved the bag whilst sweeping the room last week.
Sources say that, although the investigation has been marked as 'pending', it's understood that no further action is being taken, and that Kenwood later went to the sweet shop on a guilt trip to buy the kids some lollipops.
