Mr. Yummy Whips Mr. Whippy
Today’s big scoop: When ice cream men attack:
Children and parents watched in horror as one seller, Zeheer Ramzan, smashed the window of the other’s van with a tyre lever. A second seller, Mohammed Mulla, then apparently rammed his van into the rear of the other.
John Tighe, 55, said: “It all came down to a turf war. “One was offering four, two scoop cones with a flake for £2 and the other said he would do them all for 10p cheaper. “I couldn’t believe it when Mr Yummy jumped out of his van and smashed Mr Whippy’s window, you just don’t expect that around here.
I assume each was driven mad by the other’s calliope.
