Maybe he didn’t really want to be rescued from bookshop

RICK JACKSON: Why aren’t we on the streets protesting about Brexit?

Have your say

An American tourist recently managed to experience something I can only dream of – being locked in a huge empty bookshop.

If he could have made himself a cup of tea and helped himself to a pastry, I think he had the makings of a perfect night.

But rather than embrace the experience, David Willis wanted out of Waterstones in London’s Trafalgar Square.

What did he do? He tweeted about it.

If that was me I’d have looked up the number for the police and called them.

The BBC reported that he did call them, and certainly the alarm was going off, but he made no mention of that on Twitter.

Perhaps he was attention-seeking or didn’t really want to be rescued after all.
