A do-it-yourself pest control blitz at a Thai restaurant in Melbourne’s CBD has backfired overnight when 10 insect bombs exploded, blowing a door off its hinges, destroying an internal wall and shattering a second storey window.
Staff at the restaurant, Le Bangkok, activated 10 cockroach bombs after the restaurant closed on Saturday night.
The Metropolitan Fire Brigade says a staff member at the Lonsdale St restaurant suffered minor cuts from shattered glass in the explosion, which occurred about 12.50am Sunday.
“Cockroach bombs” ??? What will be next, oh dear!
