Posh Tea Shop Cockroach Shock
A newly opened teashop on a Berkshire street dubbed ‘Millionaire’s Row’ seems to be very popular with customers. Oh, sorry, not ‘customers’ - I mean ‘cockroaches. ’ Yes, the Teapot tea room on the high street in Cookham, near Maidenhead, is literally crawling with them after an evil saboteur posted the critters through the letterbox.
Owner Diane Bryant had only opened the shop two weeks earlier with her business partner Magda, when she arrived one morning to discover 50 Madagascan hissing cockroaches roaming around on the floor. A pest control specialist who was called in to investigate said he’d never seen the species in 25 years of working in the industry.
Yes, not only were they cockroaches, but they were immigrants, too! *Daily mail head swivel*
Picturesque Cookham, which was said to be the inspiration for Wind In The Willows and is home to television personalities and sports stars, is up in arms about the stunt.
‘It's a disgusting thing to do, it's vicious. We are a brand new tea shop. For someone to do this is just vile." Said Bryant. ‘Everybody has been knocking on the door and is absolutely shocked by what has happened.’
Let’s hope they find the culprit soon before those cockroaches start posting snooty reviews about the toilets on Trip Advisor.
