Yes, I admit it, it was me. Just heading off to Narnia but seem to have got the wrong wardrobe.

I always take my mobile on these trips, though the network coverage in Narnia isn't very good.

My sources tell me he was actually stuck within the wardrobe, but the Police soon realised it was and inside job and declared it an open and shut case.

No catch here. He was obviously looking for a bit of cupboard love but sounds a bit unhinged to me. Still, at least the emergency services services quickly got a handle on it.

Hahaha!

People these days, no commonsense, "oh I've dropped something behind the wardrobe, I'll go behind and get it, oh dear I'm stuck"

Even birds such as Crows have more intelligence and use a stick to get things they can't reach.

I'm surprised he can manage to find his way to work / drive a car/ get dressed. MUPPET!
