Fred Hughes, a serving member of the Coldstream Guards was arrested this morning following a disturbance in Soho. Eye witnesses say that the disturbance which led to the death of celebrity tattoo artist Li Lung Pho started after a spelling mistake on Fred's new tattoo.
Apparently according to early police enquiries Li Lung Pho tattooed a profile of a Guardsman complete with Bearskin on Mr Hughes right upper arm. In the banner beneath he also wrote the words Coldsteam Gourds which apparently led to the ensuing strangulation.
No one from the Coldsteam Gurds was available for comment. However Fred Hughes was seen being escorted by police into Bow St Police station, wearing an expression now referred to as Coldstream Gurn!
