A jealous boyfriend offered to pay a nightclub to spy on his girlfriend who was out for a hen do.
The man, who has not been named by the club, was concerned his partner would be tempted by other men at Filthy's in Newcastle, and asked the staff to keep an eye on her, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.
In a text message to the bar, he wrote: "Hi, my girlfriend is headed with a hen party this weekend to Filthy's.
"I was wondering if I would be able to pay a staff member to keep an eye on her and make sure there's no men at their table etc. I don't want the staff member to let the group know their watching though!" (sic)
The bar posted the text on to their Facebook page and confirmed no employee would do what the man requested.
Caterpillars are being killed by a zombie virus that makes them explode.
The baculovirus which is affecting caterpillars across the UK apparently brainwashes the Oak Eggar moth, forcing it to hide away from sunlight and climb to the top of plants where its body turns into liquid and bursts open, the Blackpool Gazette reports.
Wildlife expert Dr Chris Miller said: "It's like a zombie horror film.
"It is really unusual seeing caterpillars high up as they can be eaten by bird. This is a caterpillar of the Oak Eggar moth, which eats heather and bilberry, so it is normally hidden in the undergrowth not at the top of plants."
This zombie apocalypse was first spotted 100 years ago, and scientists are appealing for help to monitor the spread of the virus.
