A man who attempted to wrench the hands off Barry town hall clock was watched in amazement by council staff monitoring the town centre on closed circuit cameras, reported the Daily Mail (October 19, p19).

A spokesman for Vale of Glamorgan CC told the paper: 'It's the most bizarre thing we have ever seen. The monitoring team watched in amazement as the cameras caught the man scaling the clock tower.'

Police were waiting for the man when he scrambled down, without the hands, and engineers repaired the clock.

'He could have thrown the whole town into chaos. Nobody would have had a clue what time it was,' added the council spokesman.
