Man caught w*nking over Alan Sugar's autobiography

The book that just keeps on giving


A man was caught masturbating in a public library while perusing Lord Alan Sugar's autobiography.

The Sun reported that the unnamed individual was cuffed by police last Thursday at Crawley Library in West Sussex.

The man, who is in his 30s, was seen behaving oddly as he browsed books in the biz section of the library.

He eventually selected Sugar's What You See Is What You Get autobiography.

More surprisingly, he covered his lap with his coat and started having what the Hackney, London-born star of The Apprentice might refer to as a tommy tank.

He was detained by security guards, after staff at the library saw the man toying with his todger. Police held the man on suspicion of outraging public decency.

An anonymous source who witnessed the man masturbating told The Sun: "He spent about 20 minutes looking through the books in the business section before selecting Alan Sugar's autobiography.

"He was behaving rather oddly so we kept an eye on him and then he just sat down with his coat over his lap and started pleasuring himself as he looked through the book.

"It was very bizarre behaviour and our security guys got a hold of him before too many people saw what he was doing."

The man was banned from returning to the library and cautioned by police.

Lord Alan, who has been wasting lots of time being shouty at Piers Morgan on Twitter, offered his own thoughts about the sorry incident this morning.

    HPE urges 'consciously hybrid' strategy for UK public sector

    Sponsored In 2013, the UK government heralded Cloud First, a ground-breaking strategy to drive cloud adoption across the public sector. Eight years on, and much of UK public sector IT still runs on-premises - and all too often - on obsolete technologies.

    Today the government‘s message boils down to “cloud first, if you can” - perhaps in recognition that modernising complex legacy systems is hard. But in the private sector today, enterprises are typically mixing and matching cloud and on-premises infrastructure, according to the best business fit for their needs.

    The UK government should also adopt a “consciously hybrid” approach, according to HPE, The global technology company is calling for the entire IT industry to step up so that the public sector can modernise where needed and keep up with innovation: “We’re calling for a collective IT industry response to the problem,” says Russell MacDonald, HPE strategic advisor to the public sector.

  • A Raspberry Pi HAT for the Lego Technic fan

    Sneaking in programming under the guise of plastic bricks

    There is good news for the intersection of Lego and Raspberry Pi fans today, as a new HAT (the delightfully named Hardware Attached on Top) will be unveiled for the diminutive computer to control Technic motors and sensors.

    Using a Pi to process sensor readings and manage motors has been a thing since the inception of the computer, and users (including ourselves) have long made use of the General Purpose Input / Output (GPIO) pins that have been a feature of the hardware for all manner of projects.

    However, not all users are entirely happy with breadboards and jumpers. Lego, familiar to many a builder thanks to lines such as its Mindstorms range, recently introduced the Education SPIKE Prime set, aimed at the classroom.

    Home quarantine week was the price for an overseas trip, ongoing observation is the price of COVID-19

    Feature My family and I recently returned to Singapore after an overseas trip that, for the first time in over a year, did not require the ordeal of two weeks of quarantine in a hotel room.

    Instead, returning travelers are required to stay at home, wear a government-issued tracking device, and stay within range of a government-issued Bluetooth beacon at all times for a week … or else. No visitors are allowed and only a medical emergency is a ticket out. But that sounded easy compared to the hotel quarantine we endured in 2020.
