Friends get their own back on newly-wed

A PRACTICAL joker had the tables turned on him when his friends transformed his garden into a mock-up of a travellers' site while he was on honeymoon.

A PRACTICAL joker had the tables turned on him when his friends transformed his garden into a mock-up of a travellers' site while he was on honeymoon.

Shaun Parker and his new wife Catherine came home from Herefordshire to find a trailer, logs and compost on his drive and his car dumped in the back garden.

The 48-year-old joker from Weeley in Essex has been playing post-wedding pranks on his friends for many years and his friends came up with the idea to get him back after he had a run-in with travellers who parked on his land in Brightlingsea.

He said although he expected a joke to be played on him he was gobsmacked when he got home.
