Now there's a bar where everybody knows his name.
A Dutchman sick of noise from the Irish pub next door nailed the doors shut, drilled a hole in the wall and flooded the crowded bar with his hosepipe.

Murphy's pub, in Deventer, was full of people celebrating an annual carnival when the water came gushing in.

Pub manager Rianne Jansen said people tried to get out but couldn't as the doors had been nailed shut...

Neighbour Tom van den Belt who admitted he blocked the doors, drilled a hole in the wall and then flooded the pub before calling out the fire brigade, told police he was sick and tired of the noise... [Ananova]
