Half Cut Driver

Kathryn Quinn

When it comes to being a cheapskate, this scrapyard boss doesn't believe in half measures.

After he found the clapped out Fiat Punto he'd bought was too big for his truck, instead of hiring a bigger one he simply sliced the car in two with a chainsaw on the spot.

But when furious neighbours saw petrol and oil pouring down the street they dialled 999.

"We heard this tremendous racket and there were two men with chainsaws hacking a car to pieces. I thought it was a practical joke and kept looking for the hidden cameras," said one.

Now police in Essen, Germany, say he faced industrial pollution charges for allowing the fuel and oil to enter the water system through the drains.
