A mother has returned home from the shops to discover a wild beast sat on her driveway.
She tried feeding the creature to keep it distracted from raping her, but it was unable to work out how to open a packet of crisps.
Luckily the Police turned up just in time and were able to capture it, but it is doubtful whether it will be back in the zoo for long before it escapes again.
A mother who returned home from a trip to Tesco to find an illegal immigrant sitting in her driveway fed him chocolate and crisps to waylay him until police arrived.
Jacky Goodfellow, 40, gave the 23-year-old Eritrean a Penguin chocolate bar and a packet of Hula Hoops – but said that he did not know how to open the crisps.
The mother-of-six said she then sat and chatted with the ‘pleasant young man’ – a science graduate in his own country – while her daughter called the police to their home in the village of Elvington, near Dover, Kent.
Mrs Goodfellow said: ‘It was really surreal. The police asked us to stop him running away.
‘He was a very pleasant young man but obviously he shouldn’t be here. I just felt for the guy.’
Mrs Goodfellow said that she had unpacked her shopping and asked if he was hungry: ‘We are all human.
‘I gave him a Penguin and a packet of Hula Hoops. But he didn’t know how to open the crisp packet. It was a weird afternoon.’
Mrs Goodfellow said the man could speak English well, and told her that he had a degree in science and wanted to claim asylum in the UK and become a teacher.
She said he told her he had come to the UK on a ferry after hiding beneath a lorry. He said he had gone undetected by sniffer dogs at the port of Calais.
After crossing the channel he said he then let go of the lorry near a field and walked to Elvington in the hope of finding a police station.
The migrant claimed to have walked all the way to Calais from Africa.
Her daughter, hairdresser Alice, 19, said she had been ‘shocked’ to see the migrant in the driveway at around 2.30pm on Monday.
But she said: ‘He was quite friendly, quite chilled out and just wanted help really.’
