A Surrey man has today taken the unprecedented step of suing a cold sore which appeared yesterday on his bottom lip.
Peter Williamson, 42, from Wraysbury, confirmed that he took the action as a last resort following decades of persistent harrassment by the cold sore. "I've just had enough," said a frustrated Mr. Williamson earlier today. "It's been happening for years. It shows up whenever it wants and just hangs around. It costs me a fortune in cream to try and get rid of the bugger, and it bloody hurts too."
The cold sore was unavailable for comment.
