Worker jailed for €200,000 rampage

A sacked employee who caused £175,000 (€206,000) worth of damage when he went on a rampage at his former workplace has been jailed for 20 months.

Wayne Crook (40), pictured, was "hellbent on revenge" when he attacked every room at Bristol Flying Centre with a hammer.

Crook smashed the company's vehicle and computers and daubed the words "gross misconduct" in blood on one wall. Every desk, toilet and telephone was broken at the company, which handles business aviation for Bristol Airport.

Bristol Crown Court was yesterday told Crook was furious when he was dismissed after moving an aircraft in a hanger – something he was not qualified to do.
