York students face off against Dalek

Davrotic dummy drinking deterrent

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

A York man fed up with local students has made a Dalek he can sit inside in a bid to frighten away teenage ne'er-do-wells.

Andrew Simpson, 22, spent 10 months and £1,000 to build the contraption, which comes complete with its own voicebox.

The device allows Simpson to deter curious passers-by with the rejoinder "I don't like students. You will be EX-TER-MIN-ATE-ED!"

"The best bit is just sitting in it and waiting for someone to approach. When someone comes up to touch you shout 'Exterminate!' and they jump out of their skin," Simpson told the Metro, adding that his street has become quieter as a result of his endeavours. Students are "no match for the Dalek", he added.

Simpson, who runs a TV and film memorabilia business, wants to enhance the mock alien so that it is able to squirt water and smoke as a further deterrent. ®
