DIVORCE proceedings can bring out the beast in many people, but this example of animal cunning will take some beating. An Englishman living off Guildford Road on The Peak told Back Bites a neighbour telephoned him at the office to warn that his estranged wife had returned from Singapore and had let herself into the apartment.

When he got home, he discovered her camped down in the vacant children's room. Convinced her husband was having scores of affairs, she had settled in for a long watch, equipped with camera and plenty of food and drink. She had even connected a baby intercom, a device for monitoring sleeping children, to the main bedroom so she would be able to spring out and catch him in flagrante delicto.
