AN 87-year-old man who beat off an intruder with his shoe says he'll be ready if his attacker ever returns to his home.
"If he comes back, I'll do him up. I'll be ready for him next time," he said.
"I didn't expect anybody to come in wanting to do me up, did I?
"I'll fix him up if he comes in, I'll use my fists on him next time, I'm pretty handy."

"I took the bloody shoe off and thumped him," Mr Oswin said.
"I probably broke his nose and broke his teeth and he fell over.
"By this time he got up and I thumped him again. He ran out the door and he said 'I'll get you, I'll come back to get you'.
