Oompa-Loompa and Tinky Winky cuffed for drunken brawl

Spiderman also weighs into holiday camp scrap

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Devon cops yesterday cuffed an Oompa-Loompa, Tinky Winky and Spiderman following a drunken fancy dress punch-up at a Devon holiday camp.

According to the Sun, officers were called to the Welcome Family Holiday Park in Dawlish at around 1am yesterday after 20 pissed holidaymakers laid into each other, in the process allegedly injuring two stewards.

The Oompa-Loompa - reportedly a 47-year-old dad - was with two others "kept in police cells overnight after being quizzed on suspicion of violent disorder".

A staff member told the Sun: “It was rather comical in some ways because of the fancy dress costumes people were wearing. You don’t expect to see Teletubby Tinky Winky and Spiderman in the middle of things like this.”

He concluded: “It was a case of too much booze being knocked back and then something happened which kicked things off.”

Police confirmed they'd been able to identify the alleged perps of the fisticuffs “by what they were wearing”.

Disappointingly, the Sun does not answer the most pressing question: Whether it's the Oompa-Loompas or the Teletubbies who prevailed in the almighty skirmish.

Whatever the case, we'd pay good money to see either of them go head-to-head with the Smurfs, the Shaolin Temple kung fu monks and Chuck Norris in the El Reg Arena of Death. ®
