Self-proclaimed Prince of Kernow, Aberdias Trout of Pembworthy near Bude, invaded Merthyr’s newest and largest jumble sale in a pasty and cider fueled rage last night, claiming the white towers to be part of his homeland.

Local residents said he scaled the giant walls waving a giant pasty screaming, ‘Ger ov moy larnd’.

Local police inadvertently added fuel to his fire by offering him a corned beef pasty while trying to coax him down. Mr Trout offered, ‘to lift their tails’ in response.

WalesOnCraic asked the International Pasty Council for comment but they were all on break.

The situation remains volatile.
