A red-faced diner returned to a restaurant to ask for a drunken PS700 tip back. The unnamed drunk customer enjoyed his PS42 meal at Colorado's Thailicious so much that he left a US$1000 dollar tip - the equivalent to around PS705. The waiter was thrilled and took the tip to his boss, Bee Anantatho, who kept it safe overnight. Unfortunately for the waiter, the freshly sober and embarrassed diner returned the following day. Anantatho told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "He said 'I'm sorry I was drunk'. He didn't know he put all the money he had in the check book." He did leave a $28 dollar tip instead.

British WiFi company EE is giving free 4G Wi-Fi to festival-goers using hedges inspired by Glastonbury landmarks. The mobile phone and Internet provider has turned to The Pyramid Stage, The Park Tower and the Arcadia Spider for inspiration for its WiFi hotspots. Spencer McHugh, Director of Brand at EE, said: "We are already tripling the capacity of our 4G network on site to keep up with the ever-increasing demand for data we see at big events, and the addition of these selfie-friendly hotspots will give everyone on site a chance to share their pictures and videos seamlessly." EE, the official technology and communications partner of Glastonbury Festival, has created its 4GEE hedgeliners with help from horticultural artists Agrumi, who sculpted them with moss and hand-decorated them with individually applied silk flowers, ribbons and LEDs. The 4G Wi-Fi hotspots are available from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. yesterday to Sunday and will be placed at popular locations around the site to allow visitors on any mobile network to simply log-on with the password provided.
