TV Licence man treated for shock after someone answers door in West Belfast

A TV Licence man is being treated for shock after knocking a door in West Belfast which someone actually answered, it has emerged. 

The enforcer, working on behalf of the BBC, was treated by paramedics at the scene after collapsing on a doorstep in the Turf Lodge area.

38-year-old Licensing Inspector Harry O’ Callahan was patrolling the West Belfast housing estate this morning when he got the surprise of his life.

“When I knocked the door, never in my wildest dreams did I expect anyone to answer it”, he explained while shivering and wrapped in a blanket.

“Normally when I approach the door I hear the bastards shout ‘quick hide, it’s the TV licence man’.

“Then I see a family of twelve struggling to hide behind the sofa”.

“But this morning much to my amazement, a young man answered the door. I think I must’ve passed out or something cos the next thing I know two paramedics were crouching over me”, he added.

The inspector’s call was answered by 27-yr-old Jehovah’s Witness Chucky Russell.

The Games Workshop employee told us why he felt compelled to answer the door.

“I know only too well how it feels to watch a family of twelve hide behind a sofa rather than talk to you”.

“I guess I know what it must feel like to go canvassing for the Green Party come election time”, claimed Chucky.
