Whatever next? Apparently a marketing person from a London post facility was seen strolling along the Croisette (the bit that runs up and down the beach) in Cannes last week in the early hours of the morning pushing a very solid- looking wheelbarrow complete with bollard, traffic cone and rake. Sources say he was very impressed by the sturdiness of the barrow and had taken it because he had a 'desperate need for it'. When stopped outside the Martinez by what he thought were council workers (who started squawking at him in French) he kept saying: 'It's mine, it's mine.' Eventually, he understood one word in the French being hollered at him. Unfortunately that word was Police, as in 'we are the police - you're nicked'. And then he was off, as fast as a man with a wheelbarrow can go - leading to something akin to a scene from The Sweeney - chased down lanes and even hiding under a car! Off The Record has failed to discover whether he got caught or not but we do wonder what was he going to do with the barrow had he got it back to his room. And, more to the point, how the hell was he going to get the damn thing back through customs?
