Oompa-Loompa, Spiderman, and Tinky Winky Involved In Drunken Brawl
An Oompa-Loompa, Spiderman and Tinky Winky were arrested during a drunken brawl at a holiday camp.
Police were called to the Welcome Family Holiday Park in Dawlish, Devon, after a mass fight involving holidaymakers at fancy dress party.
Ten people in total were held after the bizarre clash took place in the main club area.
A suspect dressed as one of the Teletubbies, a youth posing as Spiderman and a 47-year-old father dressed as one of the pint-sized characters from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory were kept in police cells overnight.
The trio were quizzed on suspicion of violent disorder following the row just before 1am on Sunday.
A staff member told The Sun: ‘It was rather comical in some ways because of the fancy dress costumes people were wearing.
‘You don’t expect to see Teletubbie Tinky Winky and Spiderman in the middle of things like this.
‘It was a case of too much booze being knocked back and then something happened which kicked things off.’
Meanwhile there were others arrests for drunken violence and street fights in Torquay and in a curry house in Paignton.
A teenager needed hospital treatment after being bitten on the nose in a five man street clash in the seaside resort.
And two men needed treatment after a fight in the Tandoori Nights curry house in Preston, Paignton - three men were arrested in connection with that incident.
