New Year Lock-In
For one 73 year old lady in France, New Year's Eve turned out to be a rather solitary and definitely unusual experience - the poor woman got stuck in a supermarket for the night. Apparently she had been shopping and felt faint, so had taken refuge in the toilets, but when she emerged everyone had gone home leaving her trapped inside.
As she wondered around the shop she triggered the alarms, but all the staff were evidently busy celebrating and nobody realised she was there until the morning.
According to the BBC she was too honest to help herself to a New Year's treat from the shelves. Had it been me, I would have made a beeline for the wine section and would have been found in a happy little curled up ball the next morning, sleeping it off.
